“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” – Galileo  (Source:  Sententias)

“Faith is not a leap in the dark; it’s the exact opposite. It’s a commitment based on evidence… It is irrational to reduce all faith to blind faith and then subject it to ridicule. That provides a very anti-intellectual and convenient way of avoiding intelligent discussion.”  – John Lennox
(Source:  Apologetics 315)

And reason leads us to examine the Scriptures of ancient Israel…and respond to the reason and rational evidence put forth therein.
