How to Know Nothing
Hope in a Harsh World
There’s only one thing we can be sure of when we draw our conclusion from an “under the sun” perspective, and that is: we don’t know. We don’t know why there’s undeserved reward and unfair punishment; we don’t know why we’re unhappy and impossible to satisfy; we don’t know why life is so exasperating and meaningless. In Ecclesiastes Chapter 8, the teacher wants us to know that pursuing wisdom is the most powerful remedy for finding meaning in a meaningless world.
