If we compare the two basic lines of thought on the characterization (not getting into the post modern understanding- Gadamer- truth is accepted reality)- we are looking at the scientific and the the theological understanding to the issue.
On one hand, we have the understanding that what is true is what is discovered rationally/ through knowledge in nature.
The other, theology- invariably requires a blind belief. Human beings cannot autonomously seek an understanding.
Question: Who do we consult?
