“Tell the truth and shame the devil”
To “tell the truth”to the devil (or whoever) you need to know what the truth is. But much, much more importantly you need to believe that the truth exists, and is accessible to human inquiry. And therefore, that it is worth spending a lot of people’s lives, time, energy, resources and heartache finding it.
And, once you’ve found the truth, you have to live with the fact that, almost certainly, it’s not the whole truth. It’s always provisional, although it may be near enough.
But my goodness it is really exciting, for individuals and groups, trying to work out the truth of it. And joyful when you finally do so and share your discovery with others. And get their reaction, praise and brickbats.
On this Site I plan to tell the truth. I am not promising that I’ve got everything right, but I’ve done my best. If you want to offer corrections or comments or help, please do so on this Website or use the Contact page.
