In dominant classical Greek thought the human mind can conquer anything given enough scientific rigor, in Abrahamic thought the human mind can conquer anything meant to be understood but unless one is a prophet one can not understand the divine from what I understand.
I have been arguing that these two ways of knowing may be unknowable by the human mind, at least at this point in human history and perhaps for all of human existence. Faith is therefore to me a somewhat alien decision besides the evidence I have that this universe is so neatly ordered.
Denying the prophetical nature of figures is of course dangerous in many parts of the world, so I won’t blather on.
Credit to my political philosophy class for letting me express myself in this manner.
