This is the season of Lent. In the church calendar, it's the season between Ash Wednesday and Easter during which we Christians examine ourselves and our relationship to g-d, and spend time facing the chasm that separates us from true holiness and true righteousness. We also get to contemplate the sacrifice that was made on our behalf by Jesus the Christ, and what that means in our lives.
I hope to post some thoughts over the next few days about what it means to know the truth. I hope to examine the very concept of truth, our ability to know it, and how this actually works in real life. A lot has been written over the centuries about truth. We all act as if we know what it is. But it's more subtle than we might think, so please come back to see what we can learn from examining what we can actually know about the world around us.
