Yet another from the archives, and one of my favorites:
There is a Chinese parable about faith and feeling. Fact, Faith, and Feeling are three men walking along the top of a wall. As long as Faith keeps his eyes on Fact, ahead of him, all three keep walking. But when Faith takes his eyes off Fact and turns around to worry about how Feeling is doing, both Faith and Feeling fall off the wall. (But Fact never does.)
This ought to get the relativists in a tizzy. What is fact? What is Truth? What makes you think your Truth is the right Truth? Yadda-yadda-yadda. Sometimes I honestly think that the Patron Saint of America is Pontius Pilate.
