of Monnow is an event that occurred soon after the
Norman Conquest, and it's the title of a book in The
Rabbit of Usk. The actual date is a little obscure, the
actual location is equally obscure but at least whether
or not it actually happened is no longer up for debate.
The point being that in all matters religious there is
no requirement for empirical evidence, except when
determining an individual's worthiness to be counted
amongst the saints.
And too, it
might be useful to note, the determining of an individual's
worthiness is more often a political matter than it is an
empirical question. Granted the current era has long
considered wealth empirical evidence of worthiness, but
hardly ever is wealth evidence, empirical or otherwise, that
marks an individual as an heroic hero as opposed to an
ordinary common or garden sausage eating hero with foreign
investments. This is of course no more than one open minded
writer of pulp's view, there will be other probably less
well informed opinions. And tomorrow I will proceed to
denigrate the empirical philosopher Hume.
