Theology, The Practice of Ignorance

According to Dr Theodore Thinkelspein, "Theology... induces a dogmatic belief that we have knowledge where in fact we have ignorance, and by doing so generates a kind of impertinent insolence towards the universe." Couldn't have said it better myself, except to point out that as theology starts with the presumption that the premiss that the godhead exists is a given, it is already flawed as a meaningful enquiry into truth and reality. In other words, it's all a lot of bunkum!

Heard a great quote on the radio just now (Radio 4):

"religion is the crack alley of the intellect"

Love It
