I like it, I'm smiling. I think it depends on man's unsatisfied search. The outsider may be looking into orthodoxy for truth

I would have substituted knowledge for truth, but as a working philosophy it makes much sense. Today's heresy often becomes tomorrow's canon.

To know the truth has been the worst enemy of churches for milleniums. That is why in the middle ages, when the church had full power, the knowledgment stopped almost completely. Until the invention of printing when everybody could read and express ideas to figure out how science works.. Many were killed by the church's inquisition but searching for the truth finally prevailed over the church darkness.

I tend to agree with Anonymous in spite of the horrible sentence structure and spelling.

The 'truth' is always up for re-evaluation. I think most religions are simply human claims to 'truth' gathered together in a package, then the truth is sort of held for ransom and we can't get to it unless we bow and scrape and tithe to the 'ministers'. Free the truth from religion!
