Lispian Random meanderings on whatever catches my fancy

Lispian
St. Augustine

One of my favourite ancient writers is St. Augustine. I’ve been slowly reading through City of God. It’s a hard read, especially as the language is not something I’m used to reading. But the man’s intellect simply shines through. And since I always wanted to finish the book I’ll push myself to finish.

For those unwilling or unable to finish City of God I’ll leave you with my favourite Augustinian quote:

Christians should not hold dumb opinions about the natural world based solely on misreadings of the Bible, especially opinions that can be demonstrably falsified by reason, lest the Faith be subject to ridicule and mockery.

If more Christians would just follow that edict we wouldn’t have the problems with science education we see worldwide at the moment.
