Quid est veritas? Est vir qui adest.

In which Leah Libresco talks about her move from Patheos’s atheist portal to its Catholic one. I thought this was a sweet and moving post which is pretty clearly about a work in progress. Conversion is for life (not just for Christmas!) and we’re all making mistakes and making progress day by day. I’m super excited to see where this goes.

Also, because I know she’ll appreciate it, I must once again quote David Ives’s play The New Jerusalem: The Interrogation of Baruch de Spinoza: Valkenburgh: You spoke about philosophy with a simple girl? About what Plato thinks and what Aristotle thinks?

Spinoza: No, about what I think and what she thinks. Plato and Aristotle? You start listening to them and before you know it you’re believing in rabbits out of hats, or the Virgin Birth!
