Religious faith vs. logic

Richard Dawkins—a scientist, writer, noted atheist and former Oxford University Professor for the Public Understanding of Science—argues that faith is in many ways a virus, and I think his argument is justified. Faith, particularly religious faith, is in truth no different than a deliberate arrest of one's faculties of reason. In some cases, it may even result in the blatant denial of real facts.

Here's a video taken at the Reason Rally in Washington, DC (24 March 2012). For more information about the Reason Rally, which included speeches by Dawkins and Greta Christina, click here and here.

You will also find links to Dawkins' and Christina's websites in the sidebar on the right.
