Questions, Questions

truthIn his encyclical last week PopeFrancis/Benedict XVI poses two questions that surely must be at the core of our understanding of the meaning of all human life: What is Truth? What is Faith? Or are they the same thing?

What is Truth?  - what we are told by the scientist?

What is Faith? - knowledge? superstition?


Irrelevant questions or the wrong words
What is knowledge and what is belief
Questions for intellectuals and scholars
For ordinary people - what is necessary
Faith is never knowledge - it is hope - it is speculation - God can not be known by empirical science no matter what it was called in Latin
