There is never faith without reason. Ask a Christian why he believes in God and he will give you a reason. Faith in God or man or nature is imperative, or all the facts of science are meaningless. No more than collected paraphernalia, or the categorizing of chaotic chaffs of chance without dignity.A kind of obsessed blind numbering of events within a universe in which events themselves (men and animals) are playthings of a mechanical process without intent.<quoted text>
Faith seeks understanding....(St. Anselm)
(Likewise understanding does not seek faith....You cannot make someone have faith with your understanding)
Faith without reason is blind, but reason without faith is empty....(Immanuel Kant)
Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth...(Blessed John Paul II...,Fides et Ratio(Faith and Reason))
With misplaced faith in a evil cause, man can suffer tragedy better than he can bear happiness in a universe without meaning, stripped of all the heroic elements that are part of his psychological heritage. He can at least grit his teeth and show contempt for the fate he believes controls his life, but a meaningless universe leaves him without recourse.
