Revelation vs philosophy

“Tertullian likens the philosophers to men stumbling and groping about in the dark. Once in a while, he says, they do ’stumble on the truth by a happy accident,’ but it is inexcusable for a Christian to follow such blind and unreliable guides since he has something far better — a revelation from Heaven.” — Hugh Nibley, The World and the Prophets, p. 9, Tertullian, De Anima, c. 2.
