F**k reason

Another article was posted on Smirking Chimp talking about religion and the politics flowing from religion as being wrong because, they are in the opinion of the writer irrational.

You know....I have problems with people on the religious right but at the same time, when you get right down to it, this "Reason" thing which writers like to talk about is a species of beast not seen in the real world.

There's rational actions and decisionmaking but Reason, with a big R, which is the sense that this writer was meaning it, is not present in real life. People don't make their decisions according to reasonable standards in the sense that reasonable standards in this guy's mind lead him to logically reject the existence of god.

If anything there's a lot more ambiguity in life, which, not surprisingly, is what religion deals with....
