Four Good Reasons for Belief
(Click here for full size poster.)
The “Out Campaign”, a beacon of enlightenment at the forefront of rational thinking, has produced a puerile little poster to illustrate the irrationality of beliefs based on faith, authority, revelation and tradition. Despite the subtle and witty acronym, the poster fails because the rationalists at “Out” have put their ‘faith’ in their own definitions of the words, definitions which are nothing short of a caricature of the standard, and biblical meaning. However ‘authoritatively’ the ‘traditions’ of secularism and scientism claim to ‘reveal’ something to us about religion, there is no necessary conflict between faith and reason.
