It's precisely because religion relies on personal revelation, that it's unreasonable. Once your personal revelation has convinced you about God and the necessary adjuncts to His existence, any data interpretation that casts doubt on those adjuncts is dismissed. The chance of discovery is lost.Sir, follow the bouncing ball:
If God exists, and if said God is Jesus, it follows that what said God revealed is true--which also means anything that conflicts with this is false.
If there is a God, and if that God is Jesus, it is reasonable, then, to believe what that God revealed and also reasonable to reject anything that does not conform to it.
If there is a God, and if said God is Jesus, said God is what grounds all of reality.
I thought I explained already that religion does not work like Science. Science works on discovery. Religion on revelation.
Unreasonable huh? Why? Because I believe climate change is a problem--but won't panic and run around like the sky is falling? Because I believe COVID is a problem--but there also--refuse to ruled by fear?
Sir, was the COVID virus a problem? Sure! I acknowledge that. My POINT is that---the response of the medical community----was not reasoned or rational. The response was to panic and overreact. No one had a problem with reasonable measures to keep people safe. We had a problem with panic and overreaction. The same with climate change. No one has a problem with a certain amount of reasonable measures to help curb climate change where possible. We have a problem with panic and overreaction. We do not yet have star trek technology. Until such time as we develop star trek technology we have to rely on what we do have. That means Fossil Fuels will be in use until we develop something practical that can replace them. I am all for that--but we aren't yet there.
You think I am unreasonable because I refuse to be ruled by fear and panic both with climate change and COVID.
I think that you are allying yourself with those gripped by fear and panic over the reasonable measures suggested and put in place, both over COVID and climate change. When people are more fearful of a vaccination than they are of the disease it protects against, unreason is in play. When people are more fearful of protecting unsustainable jobs in the coal industry, rather than the future of their grandchildren, unreason is in play.
