The closed-mindedness of faith


Leave it to one of Christianity's "fathers" to explain the arrogance and irrationality of faith.  To a believer, faith requires no rational explanation.  It is entirely based on feelings.  On the other hand, no explanation can convince a non-believer of faith's truth claims.  This is precisely because they are irrational.  For a believer to assert this, however, is the height of arrogance and close-mindedness.  It says that there are some things that only I, as a believer, can understand.  The truth of the universe is closed to you, Mr./Ms. Non-Believer, simply because your mind works rationally and rejects the epistemology of emotion.
