Blind Squirrels

A philosopher is a blind man in a dark room
looking for a black cat that isn’t there. A theologian
is the man who finds it.

A philosopher is the one who claims to seek and a theologian is the one who claims to find, but neither is engaged in the seeking or finding of truth. They can’t be, because then they’d be idiots, unable to find the one thing that can never be lost, and as tempting as it might be to believe that juveniles are stupid, they’re not. They can be terribly clever and intelligent, but they are guided by forces over which they cannot hope to prevail until they can see them, which these very forces cunningly disallow.
