Sunday Stupidity: On Faith
Faith is not knowledge. It is saying that, for you, knowledge is actually irrelevant:
“’Faith’ designates blind acceptance of a certain ideational content, acceptance induced by feeling in the absence of evidence or proof.”
- Leonard Peikoff, The Ominous Parallels
With the result:
“The alleged short-cut to knowledge, which is faith, is only a short-circuit destroying the mind.”
- Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
