Nothing New Under the Sun, Even in My Blog!

It may be possible for science to determine the ultimate truth of the universe.  It is just that we can never know such truth has been reached.

That is a small part of a long post in the “early days” of this blog.

Xenophanes, about 2500 years ago:

The certain truth there is no man who knows, nor ever shall be, about the gods and all the things whereof I speak.  Yea, even if a man should chance to say something utterly right, still he himself knows it not – there is nowhere anything but guessing.

quoted in A History of Western Philosophy by Bertrand Russell, page 40
