The problem with all the mind-level intellectuals is they are aware that every argument has the seed of an impressive counter-argument in it, and yet they argue. Faith transcends reason. Reason gets stuck up at the last hurdle and knocks desperately at the portals of faith. But the doors of faith will never open, so far as an individual sticks to reason. When logic surrenders, the true nature of faith can be experienced by an individual generally. Faith is necessarily an internal asset... Order 322764 Topic: Hume-Faith and...
