Journal Entry #347
February 11th, 2011
I am consistently told by the faithful that reason and faith are not compatible, that faith has nothing to do with reason, I hear things like;
Reason is the enemy of faith.
Faith does not require reason
Science doesn’t know everything and can be wrong
Let go of your god of reason and logic and set yourself free.
Reason and logic make me laugh.. ( Which is more true than they know)
What they absolutely fail to acknowledge is that it is the process of reasoning that brings them to their belief in their god. To have true faith is an impossibility as a human must think in order to understand what it is they have faith in.
Well let’s put this to the test. No more talking and speculating since you will not agree with what I say let’s see if faith can actually work as they say. Faith will require to just do things without any thinking and I am interested in seeing how this will translate in daily activities.
In order to demonstrate this I offer this challenge;
If reason and logic make you laugh then stop using it. I challenge you to go an entire day without using reason and logic. You use it constantly and don’t even value it. Without it you would walk around in circles all day long not knowing why, where, who, what or when on anything.
Reason – comprises conception, judgment, reasoning, and the intuitional faculty.
Logic – The study of the principles of reasoning, especially of the structure of propositions as distinguished from their content and of method and validity in deductive reasoning.
