Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)


By insisting on this openness, I mean to deny any unavoidable pervasive error in the way we perceive the world to be. I deny systematic deception, whether as a result of any distorting influence of our own senses or resulting from any ultramundane entity.

  1. Hence, the openness of the world implies that any explanation of the appearance of things that relies on divine or other deception is false1.
  2. Similarly, appeals to unrecorded miracles to explain geological or other phenomena are to be rejected.
  3. Appeals to recorded miracles, such as the one alluded to in the above example, are to be evaluated as described elsewhere in this paper.
