About William Ockham

I am a father of two with eclectic interests in theology, philosophy and sports. I chose the pseudonym William Ockham in honor of his contributions to philosophy, specifically Occam's Razor, and its contributions to modern scientific theory. My blog ( explores Ignatian Spirituality and the intersection of faith, science and reason through the life and writings of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (pictured above).

  1. “Does the current theological language of the Church lend itself to intelligible communication of the Gospel? Or has our knowledge of the world rendered it a bit outdated, like using an old programming language that isn’t optimized for modern development environments. Is the theological language of the Church optimized for our understanding of our situation, or are trying to understand our situation by hacking a language that is based on much older worldview?”

    Very valid questions raised. An interesting article. Thanks for sharing.
