Bethyada on theology. Thoughts on Scripture, interpretation, and what Scripture might have to say about contemporary issues.
"Faith: No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked policies of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot -- it's a poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It's a parasite that's regarded as a virtue. I speak as a representative of the scientific faction of atheism here -- it's one thing we simply cannot compromise on. Faith is wrong, and at the same time faith is a central tenet of just about every religion on the planet. We can't ignore that -- that's the thing we are interested in fighting."--P.Z. Myers
The quote was not about faith. it was about grace!And Myers fails to understand what "faith" means. "Faith" is related to the word "faithful".
