A discussion by the Epiphany Philosophers

The Epiphany Philosophers are a group of philosophers and psychologists who are also members of the Church of England. The traditional story for the Feast of the Epiphany, namely that of the Wise Men from the East being led by a star to Bethlehem, provides a close parable of the approach to religion made by philosophers and scientists of this kind. This approach is undertaken not through accepting the established ways of traditional thought and worship but by trusting to an intuition that there is something to be investigated and by following the methods of thinking which science and philosophy supply.
