In this morning's Catholic Things, my monthly column discusses the range of reason and what it means to say that we know the reality of God and his creation of the world by what is normally called "natural reason."
The argument is, in part, a distillation of an early chapter of The Vision of the Soul: Truth, Goodness, and Beauty in the Western Tradition, the remainder is precipitated from my mulling of work by Mark Shiffman and Robert Louis Wilken, over the last couple years.
Publishing a regular column invites misinterpretation by even well-intended readers, but it seems to draw cranks and crackpots out of the woodwork, and so I include here also a link to an early of essay of mine, "Steven Hawking Proves the Existence of God," that explains some of the summary statements in today's article.
Click on Logos to read "What Reason Must Know," and click the clam on the shore to find out what Hawking knew despite himself.
