Faith & Reason

In a world where religion is poison to some and salvation to others, how do we live together? It's an old debate, this discussion of belief and disbelief. On one end of the spectrum people say, "Only religion counts." On the other end, "Only reason counts."


Well I've always been a fellow who falls in the middle of this one. Neither wholly a believer nor wholly a skeptic, I see democracy as a co-operative that depends on our thinking out loud and reasoning through until we resolve the issue.
Bill Moyers
Bill Moyers talked with writers from around the world about Faith & Reason. They were gathered in New York for the Pen World Voices Festival.

I guess it is just a matter of having faith in our God. If we follow His commandments, then this world would be a better place to live in. Since we misconstrue some of His teachings, and make those as our defense mechanism, then that's why war begins.
