The Black Cat Analogy


The Black Cat Analogy

  • Philosophy is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat.
  • Metaphysics is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn’t there.
  • Theology is like being in a dark room and looking for a black cat that isn’t there, and shouting “I found it!”
  • Science is like being in a dark room and looking for a switch. The light will reveal a cat… if there is one.

I don’t have anything interesting to say, I just remembered this and decided to post it.
