Adam Walker in a post What is Theology? uses this cartoon: Has It Ever Occured to You That You Might Be Wrong?

I'm sure there will be lots of discussion on the nature of theology on his site, but the cartoon raises a vital issue. We might be wrong. I'm not talking in some abstract post-modernism mumble-jumble; but in the sense that all theology is an attempt to explain the unexplainable. God is God & I'm not (& neither are you!). Theology is trying to use language to describe what in many senses is beyond language. It's trying to put in a logical form what is beyond logic.
