Pontius Pilot said it all; ‘What is truth?’
The philosophical question Roman Pontius Pilot declared to Jesus still resonates today when Pilot said, “What is truth?” to Christ. This de facto question implies that moral relativism was an issue during ancient times and not just an issue invented during our times.
“What is truth?” The Greeks who were actually quite tolerant, another old issue, and were sensitive to establish a monument entitled “To an Unknown God” in hopes that their culture would not offend a deity that the Greeks did not know about. The apostle Paul in Acts of the Bible set the Greeks straight by introducing them to the deity the Greeks did not understand.
With all of our accumulated knowledge and information, Pilot’s question of “What is truth?” still haunts religious, the religiousless, and cerebral thinkers convinced that they have an idea about the promised land and the truth.
Is creation the most extraordinary set of astronomical circumstances ever to take place in existence? Those claiming to be rational have to embrace the supernatural due to the incredibly ridiculous odds in probability that we are here by accident. The odds?...how about 10 to the 40,000th power when 10 to the 16th power is deemed scientifically impossible?. There’s no truth there.http://www.science20.com/stars_planets_life/calculating_odds_life_could_begin_chance
Setting aside scientific explanations, one can next partake in the spiritual explanation which offers a plethora of choices from no deities, one deity, or a multitude of deities.
However in spite of the politically correct Greek method, there is no way every explanation could be correct regarding truth. One could use the Star Trek Mr. Spock method which stipulates, “eliminate the impossible and whatever is left is the answer no matter how improbable”.
Regarding Earth, one could immediately discard explanations that the globe rides on the back of a turtle or has a strong man holding it up. There is one explanation that “the world is a sphere and is suspended on nothing.
There are varied wild explanations of how man came into existence, but there is one explanation saying man was made from the dust of the Earth. It’s interesting our bodies consist mainly of carbon.
Many philosophies guess death is the end, however scientific string theorists postulate there are different dimensions beyond our ability to measure and other dimensions could well occupy the dimension of ours. Is death a doorway to another dimension? There is one book that clearly describes a spiritual reality more real than the one we possess.
There have been a multitude of scientific discoveries and medical procedures that have validated what the Bible has declared. In spite of claims of inaccuracy, skeptics or scoffers fail to come up with one declaration that has not been authenticated.
When God told Moses to circumcise males on the eighth day of birth, why is that? Why not right away, or three days, or one month? Because medical analysis discovered centuries later that the bacteria count was safest on the eighth day. A lucky guess by God perhaps?
There is too much substantiation to what the Bible declares to be accidental declarations. The accuracy is uncanny and the prophesies undeniable. Although the Bible is the most authenticated book of all time by archeology and manuscripts by the tens of thousands, it is still claimed to be a book of fables by skeptics stubbornly clinging to opinions of their own.http://pleaseconvinceme.com/2012/the-bible-foreshadows-scientific-discoveries/
There is only one declaration that ever claimed to have conquered death, claimed to be the way, the truth, and the life, and has satisfactorily laid out the end from the beginning.http://www.tektonics.org/jesusclaimshub.html
“What is truth?”…. one wishes Jesus said, “You’re looking at it”.
