Truth is Proportional

 

“Pascal once wrote, in so many words, that the certainty of our knowledge is inversely proportional to its significance. The truths of physics give us no words to say to a friend dying of cancer. Evolutionary biology cannot console us at the graveside.”

from R.R. Reno at First Things Blog

(Below the fold see a rebuttal)

…Physics may not give us words of comfort for a friend dying of cancer, but molecular biology may teach us how to cure him.

from Robert Miller, also on the First Things blog
