Christian Tractatus

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


There will always be areas of experience that are unexplained within any current understanding of the world. The two extreme viewpoints below are best avoided.

  1. Firstly, we wish to avoid using God to explain the gaps in our knowledge, bringing him on as a Deus ex Machina.
  2. Secondly, we wish to avoid forcing recalcitrant knowledge into currently understood patterns. There is nothing wrong with a genuine admission of ignorance, however regrettable that ignorance may be.
