  1. My Mom has been taking Catechism classes recently and brought up Plato’s mention of this to me. I have been taking a class called philosophical borderlands between science and religion and we have been discussing axiomatic truth so this has generated a discussion between Mom and I about fiding God.

Thanks for sharing.
