Other:  Reference was made to philosophers Immanuel Kant and John Locke.

Reference was also made to epistemology and epistemological silence. Epistemology is the theory of knowledge, especially with regard to its methods, validity, and scope. Epistemology is the investigation of what distinguishes justified belief from opinion.  Epistemological silence, as definied by Peter Rollins is, “Humbly acknowledging that we do not have concrete “knowledge” of certain realities, while holding the deep conviction of our experience—god, spirit, sense of awe and wonder.”
