Reflection 1-59

Is belief predicated on faith or reason? Faith. This may be unsavory to some, terrifying even. It rings of barbarism- a backward, dogmatic, and oversimplified approach to life. We create a diatribe of polemics and apologetics to ward this less than desirable label. It puzzles me though why we fear faith because it is blind, but not reason lest it prove false? If heaven and hell hang in the balance, I would rather enter the former as a simpleton than the latter erudite.
