Not sure how many people caught the Conan O'Brien show last Friday night. One of the guests was the ever-lovable Bill Maher. Of course he spent his moments in the spot-light trying to stir up as much controversy/attention as possible, but I thought part of his shtick had an interesting question buried deeply under layers of anger, hatred, and bigotry.
“Excuse me. You can't be a rational person six days of the week, and put on a suit, and make rational decisions, and go to work, and on one day of the week go to a building and think you're drinking the blood of a two thousand year old space god. That doesn't make you ... a person of faith ... that makes you a schizophrenic.”
- Bill Maher
Can reason and logic alone lead a man to faith in God? Or does faith necessarily require a departure from/beyond it? (Pope John Paul II had a little something to say on the topic.)
