What is the underlying truth that can be found beneath all that is?
One of the most perplexing, and often frustrating things about science is that no matter how elegantly an equation describes a naturally occurring phenomenon, there is always an underlying question:
No matter how deep scientists go down the rabbit hole of scientific discovery, they never can once and for all answer that nagging question:
Why do my keys fall to the ground when I drop them? Because of gravity. Why does gravity exist? Um…
Some will happily resort to religion to answer the unanswerable.When science can't explain, many point to God. Why does gravity exist? Because God created it, that's why.
But is that really a satisfactory answer? In the Catholic Church, there are thousands of pages of church documents, teachings of saints, the entirety of the Bible, all collectively known as the magisterium, or the teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church. Canon. Law.
But what is at the very heart of the teaching of the Holy Roman Catholic Church?
Everything the Church claims in it's authority is based an unknowable mystery.
Just like science, one can only go so far before you reach the unexplainable. Only with science, with the development of new technology, new techniques of measurement, and new areas of research, the answers will continue to get more and more detailed, and of course uncover more and more questions.
But how long will the Catholic Church be satisfied with the underlying answer to everything of undecipherable mystery?
Is that the difference between faith, and science? Does science require an answer while faith does not? These are not easy questions to answer, and given that the fundamental source of everything in both religious truth and scientific truth seems to be an undecipherable mystery, it pays to think of these questions with some serious thought, despite the complexities. You owe yourself at least that much.
