I’ll help you along:
If pilot was using critical thinking when inquiring of Jesus; notice the irony. The lawgiver of the universe was standing before him in a mock trial without any “truth” seeking what so ever. The socratic question produced no clear knowledge but the Way , the Truth and the Light was standing before a puppet judge that knows not truth. Pilot couldn’t find the truth if it stood before him and it did. Critical thinking had left pilot void of actual answers.
Sometimes answers are evident without much searching.
Sometimes critical thinking ignores the evident answers.
Critical thinking isn’t the goal, the truth is. Critical thinking sometimes helps us gain truth, sometimes it’s an exercise of idiots. Time exposes whether critical thinking brought about the desired truth.
