Dice

As a seeker of truth, I require evidence that something is true before I will believe it.  Many Christians who feel compelled to make the rest of the world believe exactly as they do—typically the ones who have no evidence to substantiate their beliefs—bristle at this and accuse me of trusting my intellect over God’s revelation.

Faith and ReasonI would submit that every worldview has some intellectual component to it.  Even people who hold to a blind faith have some sort of a reason for why they believe as they do.  My response to those who demand that I assent to their beliefs with blind faith can be distilled to one sentence:

 

If there is no intersection between faith and reason, then we are all simply rolling dice.
