Aristotle’s 4 causes cannot explain the supernatural but it can prompts us to go further.

A thought that came to mind while deciding on the topic to write this essay is to use Aristotle’s causality method to substantiate the existence of a Unmoved Mover or Creator (efficient cause) of the universe. Having read a bit of St Thomas Aquinas’s Summa Theologiae on his argument for…

When we look at any scientific inventions, we will never attribute it to any unintelligent being as the inventor. The cosmos is one big "creation" with much precision and intelligibility. How is it that we cannot logically attribute it to a Creator whose intelligence far exceeds our comprehension? Is it not possible that we have a loving and super intelligent Being who wants to share everything He has with us? Science and knowledge in its isolation cannot offer us meaning. It is the combination of purpose and knowledge out of love for our neighbours that infuse meaning into our lives. If we open up our minds and simply follow the truth as truth is presented to us without any impediments, maybe we can see better.

Not allowing theistic ideas to challenge some of the modern philosophies or distilling the ideas will taint the discourse and prevent us from seeing the truth. Having said that, many modern philosophers' attempt was to intentionally exclude Him anyway and hence gave birth to atheism. This exclusion was filled with our new found scientific knowledge hence killed God in the process as Nietzsche would put it. This modern worldview due to its roots and intentions has dichotomise science and God and is doing the society a big disfavour. You may disagree with me, but we will see what happens in the next 200-300 years. Truth in any form of metanarratives take time to be proven and provided we are willing to accept it.

why would it be a lie when the truth is no species on earth can procreate with homosexual activity? Unless I'm wrong.
