Understanding Nothing, Yet Intuiting Everything...


C.S. Lewis recalls an objection to the Christian God:

"My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust?

A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?
