Faith and Reason, the False Dichotomy

Pope John Paul II on faith and reason.

The link above will take you to "Fallible Blogma" (love that title), and direct you to Pope John Paul's encyclical on the subject. This is my response to those who argue that I can not be a Christian and an advocate of reason at the same time.

To go straight to the encyclical, click here.

A few words on the subject: reason lead me to faith. Period. And faith lead me to follow the beliefs of my parents and my ancestors. For an explanation of how reason lead me to faith, see my article "God Exists (But We Knew That Already).
