Faith and Rationality
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
 
Faith and rationality
it has often been claimed
are mutually exclusive, when
operationally
faith is always based on reason.
 
It is a glimpse of the night sky
that causes the mind to race,
to ratiocinate, and from what
is perceived as its basis
come to derive the existence of a Maker.
 
It can be easily explained,
the origin and proof of all
belief: the reason for it; and
if a man abandons faith
it is done in the light of a belief.
 
The faith in science, in trends,
for their demonstrability,
has quite outstripped, it seems,
the faith in God - though not
quite: just look at religion today.
 
The difference between them is
a difference of certainty
of truth: faith in the world
is faith uncertain: faith
in God, faith founded on a rock.
