1. (Religion) a doctrine at variance with established religious beliefs, especially dissension from Roman Catholic dogma by a member.
    • 1968 History of Western Civilization edited Heyes Baldwin & Cole. p.47. Macmillan. Library of Congress 67-13596.
      "Heresy meant deliberate departure from the accepted doctrines of the church. It was intellectual and spiritual dissent and concerned the beliefs of Christianity, not the morals of its adherents."
  2. A controversial or unorthodox opinion, as in politics, philosophy, or science.

Tillich uses the definition- one who questions, as in the Apostle Thomas. At this time when old religious ideas are ineffectual, recent discoveries unsettling, isn"t it time to ask if what has been passed down as true, is such? The solution to the current messiness is not a fight to see who can be most intimidating, but an idea that makes everything fall into place. Everything that is is reasonable, we just need to find the correct one, this means questioning until one comes across that that cannot be questioned.
