It is to say that reason, by itself is insufficient. Reason has its place, but first it has its starting place, which […]

“The skeptic begins by doubting. There is nothing reasonable about that. His only use of reason is to reinforce his doubt, and thus, he sinks through floor after floor of a bottomless universe.” GK Chesterton (paraphrased by Dale Ahlquist to be exact) For a person who doesn’t like ambiguity you sure use the word a […]

Sweet thanks for such a quick response, Sorry to be such a stickler about faith. It appears that we don’t understand each other. Faith means you put your trust in a thing you don’t fully understand or know to be true. Do you claim to not be doing this? If you told me that you […]
