How can anyone know beyond any doubt that their reasoning, or LOGIC, is infallible? So many of you try to prove your points using well constructed
arguments that make complete sense--BUT what makes you think that your logic is rooted in absolute truth?
Confused? Well, my point is that humans have an almost unavoidable tendency to think that once they have discovered a predictable pattern, or have
settled on rules that seem to completely describe a situation, or have settled on certain systems of reasoning (ahem...LOGIC), they have stumbled upon
an absolute truth. Those who think this way are guilty of thinking Human Beings are at the high end of the ruler of intelligence--they think that a
human can possess all the comprehension necessary to understand absolute truths. Who the HELL are we (humankind) to think that we have even the
slightest grasp on what actually is a truth? How do we know that we are the most supremely intelligent beings ever to have existed ANYWHERE and that
whatever we find to be true MUST be true?
Think of any other organism on this planet... Now while most Christians will argue that Man is special, most Atheists will argue that Man is just
another animal, albeit the smartest one. ...ok, got the organism in your head? This organism might think that they have life all figured out, but they
don't have nearly the same comprehensive abilities as humans, and as such cannot understand concepts which we can. Can a dog understand Calculus? Can
an ant fathom the complexities of a black hole? Can a dolphin (bless their empathetic souls) understand what actually makes tides? From our
observations we can all easily answer "no" to all of those questions. And while we can never know "for sure" that the answer is no, we can still
pull from this comparison the fact that there very well might be a life form that possesses greater intelligence than humankind in a similar ratio.
So, before you Atheists and Christians (and others) go and bash each others brains out for not making any sense logically, think about your logic and
how inferior it actually might be to Supreme Reasoning and Absolute Truth. Or, in other words, make sure that, whether you are cooking arguments for
someone else, or eating arguments someone else cooked for you, you use a couple grains of salt.
