- DOUBLE TRUTH
- the idea that religious TRUTH can be different from scientific or other truth. The theory was advocated by the ISLAMIC philosopher AVERROES and was rejected by ORTHODOX Christians although it has been popular since the nineteenth century as a means of escaping from problems arising from things like the theory of EVOLUTION. EVANGELICAL apologist Francis SCHAEFFER, referred to the theory in terms of UPPER AND LOWER STOREY theories of TRUTH.
