Molinism: Small Question
#1
From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molinism

Quote:These truths are independent of God's will and cannot be false.

Is this accurate?

If it is, it is false. God IS WHO IS, the first and the last, and to use the facts of this creation and our logic (which doesn't always work, as some things can deny classical logical systems, such as quantum mechanics) to say they are "above" God in anyway is heresy.

Is this statement of Wikipedia correctly describing Molinism?

In the Mystical City of God, the battle in Heaven is described as God knew what would happen as if it already did happen, but He did not reveal this information and all creation (Satan, in particular) was blind to what would happen (which lead to Satan making some pretty big boasts) unless He revealed it.

It seems God rarely reveals choices of others which take place in the future (St. Peter's denial and Judas's betrayal being the most prominent, yet even they did not violate free will) and only reveals His plan, which is independent of the choices of others. I would think this is because all beings less than God (all beings) cannot rightfully handle such information (some of the issues with knowing the future, and future choices are shown in the Matrix and Minority Report).

We have enough science to show us that "truth" is beyond our grasp. We cannot even say if the basic units of this universe are waves or particles (usually, they are both), how can we presume to know Truth without it being revealed to us?
