Freedom and theological arguments

“While arguments of physics, based on observation, experiment and mathematics, have a logically compelling character, the philosophical-theological arguments for the acceptance of a meta-empirical reality can at best be an initiation and an invitation. Thus in these latter questions there is no intellectual compulsion, but rather freedom.”

—Hans Küng, Der Anfang aller Dinge (2005), p. 95.

Or as Augustine said, God is known not by scientia but by sapientia, a knowledge not of detachment and anaysis but of desire and love.
