Learning One's Ignorance
In my last blog, I show that Nicholas of Cusa divided knowledge into two classes as follows: (1) the knowledge of God and (2) the knowledge of man. Cusa discovered God's knowledge, which is 'absolute' and never changes. He also found that God's knowledge is absolutely maximum and absolutely minimum. By finding God's knowledge, Cusa also found that man's knowledge, which is 'relativistic,' changing, and has relative maximums and minimums
Atheistic scientists argue that God does not exist because they cannot sense God. But it is not possible to sense God because God exist in a world where things cannot be sensed. Thus, God can neither be known nor sensed.
Why are atheistic making this error? In his writings "On Learned Ignorance," Nicholas of Cusa also teaches that man must learn his ignorance. So Cusa is saying that man must seek intelligence but must also learn what he cannot know. The atheists are rejecting God and making this error because they have not learned their ignorance.
