"The importance of philosophy is linked directly with the human desire to know the truth and to organize it," the rector explained. "Experience shows that knowledge of philosophy helps us to better organize, in cooperation with other disciplines, the study of any science."
I for one think most philosophy is bunk, ever have that college professor tell you the desk before you may not "really" be "real"? Run if you hear the word ontological used more then once in a sentence! Pope John Paul II loved that psuedo-intellectual babble of phenomenology. This is psychobabble of confusion from Satan who is the author of it.
This shows in their false church, the priests are far more educated in false philosophy and worldly pursuits, rather then scripture and the truth.
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1Co 1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
Now remember philosophy not scripture forms the foundation of many Catholic teachings including that of transubstantiation, which was based on Aristotle's false philosophy of "accidents" which was disproven centuries ago.
"Catholic theologians such as Thomas Aquinas have employed the Aristotelian concepts of substance and accident in articulating the theology of the Eucharist, particularly the transubstantiation of bread and wine into body and blood. According to this tradition, the accidents of the bread and wine do not change, but their substances change from bread and wine to the Body and Blood of Christ."
A verse to be heeded:
Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
