Dr Bryan Thatcher shares how be brings the gift of the Divine Mercy to the living and the dead.

Fact vs Opinion: A False Dichotomy

What’s the difference between a fact and an opinion? Many of us took quizzes in elementary school asking us to identify the two – “football is better than basketball,” “Mars is the fourth planet from the sun,” and so on. But this creates the false impression that things are either true – or are neither true nor false, the first step toward relativistic thinking. Matthew D’Antuono breaks down the false dichotomy.

Matthew D’Antuono is a physics teacher in New Jersey. He holds bachelor’s degrees in physics and philosophy, a master’s degree in special education, and is working on a master’s degree in philosophy at Holy Apostles in Cromwell, Connecticut. He is the author of A Fool’s Errand: A Brief, Informal Introduction to Philosophy for Young Catholics and is working on other books.

He went through the motions of church attendance, but the job stress took its toll on his marriage, and he became estranged from his wife, Susan. The two most important things in life — faith and family — were severely strained. Things began to change following a visit to Our Lady of Guadalupe and he now devotes his life to bringing the Divine Mercy to all. He shares his story.
