Any faith that admires truth, that strives to know God, must be brave enough to accommodate the universe.
“Palmer Joss” in the novel Contact by Carl Sagan
Truth may be unpopular, but don’t confuse being unpopular with having the truth.1Not all martyrs are righteous.
A search for truth with no willingness to change is:
- Like a fishing competition. Catch and release only.
- Like a vegetarian going big game hunting. Just another trophy for the wall, ultimately unsatisfying.
- Like a scene from A Few Good Men. “You can’t handle the truth.”
