Scholasticism is probably one of the most despised intellectual movements in human history. Thus the English word 'dunce' (fool) derives from the name of one of the greatest scholastic writers, Duns Scotus.
-from Allister E. McGrath's Reformation Thought: An Introduction
Scholastics were known to speculate on such questions as the well-known, "How many angels could dance on the head of a pin?" Other obscure questions include, "Could God have become a cucumber instead of a human being?" (was Scholasticism the underlying inspiration for Veggie Tales?!) or "Can God undo the past by making a prostitute a virgin?"
Perhaps a more pertinent question would be, "Is this post more pointless than Medieval Scholastic debates?" Hope you enjoyed it anyway.
