A little C.S. Lewis on theorizing

It’s been awhile.

Re-reading Pilgrim’s Regress by C.S. Lewis and came across this:

“Hypothesis, my dear young friend, establishes itself by a cumulative process: or to use popular language, if you make the same guess often enough, it ceases to be a guess and becomes a Scientific Fact.”

This stated by Mr. Enlightenment to John the traveler who was looking for his Island (desire). I believe I could say this about a lot of theories but a regular reader will surmise that I might apply it to both reparative theory and to the direct biological theory of sexual attractions.

Happy Easter

Easter meditations:

I’ve got my hand in redemption’s side
Whose scars are bigger than these doubts of mine.
I’ll fit all these monstrosities inside
And I’ll come alive.
-the beautiful letdown, Switchfoot, 2004

I’ve been in trouble but I’m ok,
Been through the wringer but I’m ok,
Walls are falling and I’m ok,
Under the mercy and I’m ok.
-humans, Bruce Cockburn, 1980

He is risen.
