Featured Term (selected at random:
Natural theology, or the study of God's existence and attributes as known by the light of natural reason and apart from supernatural revelation. Its main focus is to vindicate God's goodness and providence in spite of the evident evil in the universe. Gottfried Leibniz (1646-1716) is credited with giving the name to natural theology, which was already known to the ancient Greeks.

I saw one yesterday too.
When was the last time your pet made a moral or spiritual judgment?
I guess she wanted Thomas Aquinas?
If only the new puppy I just got was capable of rational thought! I would not be sitting at work sleep deprived. The cats are plotting to take her out! I sprinkled all of them with holy water, so far nothing has changed. The stand off continues!
