Acatalepsy

No one infers a god from the simple, from the known, from what is understood, but from the complex, from the unknown, and incomprehensible. Our ignorance is God; what we know is science. ~  Robert G. Ingersoll’

Like an ocean, life is deep, but we are just floating on the surface.

    Gosh, I really like that quote. I often feel like I am floating on the surface. Knowledge helps, but then you find out that there’s even more to know — and does it lead to the divine? Never, because that is unknowable. Knowledge brings more questions, like science, and they are unanswerable.

  2. Thanks for the mention, I don’t know about science but WordPress definitely helped in this amazing literary connection. 🙂

Watcha wanna say...
