asking the wrong questions to give the wrong answers

Is truth a question to be answered, or is it beauty to be sought?
Tony Jones, The New Christians, p. 157

Umm, neither?

Truth a question? We ask questions in order to learn the truth, not to think that the questions are themselves the truth.

Truth is beauty? Not all truth is such that all would judge it beautiful, and not every falsehood and lie is such that it's ugliness is readily visible.
