Discerning what truth is and what it is not has remained a playground of open debate throughout intellectual history of the world. Surprisingly, each party seems to base their arguments on common evidences laid out in Nature. So, in a nutshell, the ontological and epistemological survey of truth has engaged theists, atheists and agnostics alike. Many consider scientific logic has to be at war with religious experience of truth. If there is an absolute truth, who carries the burden of proof? Is not the very nature of proof or rather, rational truth seeking plagued when it confronts religious doctrines? Is there a logical thread that connects both rationality and religion?
