|I am ever more convinced that the foundations of Truth and Knowledge lay on the Truth of God. That is to say of wisdom and knowledge, of truth, of Law and convictions and freewill, of human history, humanity and our relationships, morality, of "good" and "bad", what ought to be, science, ect. Of all the truths our society rest upon in order for it to function properly...
For instance, without law, or objective standards of "right" and "wrong", which our entire court system rest upon, society would break down without such truths.
Or for instance, freewill is also a necessity for holding people accountable for there actions, but all to often you see nonbelievers (usually upon scientific materialism) arguing that everything is predetermined and free will is a myth... If that were true our society and its laws would fall apart.
I believe we have God given Freedoms that can certainly rest, coherently, on a foundation of God, a law giver and the first mover, or unmoved mover, "or principle of divine reason and creative order [the Word of God]" ("Logos definition, our foundation of "Logic")
Or in our foundation for Physics, Aristotle wrote in the book titled "Physics"..
This is about grappling with abstract concepts of knowledge and consciousness. I am convinced there is no better place to go to to study about human law, then the Bible.
Like Simon Greenleaf, and founder of Harvard Law School and expert on "evidence" is quoted saying...
All the while i have seen atheist philosophers argue that even our logical reasoning, or "inductive" reasoning, ought not to make sense... It is called the "problem of induction", which without God, our logical reasoning isnt even justified upon itself... And yes science needs to rest on inductive reasoning, if without God...
Our society would break down without a foundation for all these aspects of truth and knowledge.
This is what the Bible says in John (Where the "Word" is from the Greek word "Logos").
Which is interesting, itst it? The "word", or human communication is a necessity for knowledge.. And that is what this is all about, isnt it? For instance, the story of Adam and Eve is about humans coming into consciousness, and gaining knowledge... That is what the Tree of "knowledge of Good and Evil", has also been translated as, the "Tree of Consciousness"..
And isnt it funny that sources say:
Marking that about 6000 years ago, when history began with the word.
And, isnt it funny that, that Genesis names the rivers going through the Garden of Eden, that are now known in Southern Mesopotamia modern day Iraq.
This is literally human records. This is human ancestor... Where do you think our fathers go back to? The "Father of Many" Abraham... Our lineages have been recorded as far as we could start to write them down. The history of our laws, our knowledge, and humanity as we know it.
It lays on a foundation of God.
