    Would there be any particular point in reading Rahner or Eriugena? God, the supreme Being of the universe, absolutely transcends the human understanding. The lesson to draw from this? Maybe the sacred and the profane are not mutually exclusive. First, you'd actually need to prove the point with survey data about what people believe.

    It was the assembled bishops of the Catholic Church who, after collective deliberations [at Vatican II], withdrew many of the most compelling motivations for the religious life [e. Protestants rejected many aspects of Roman Catholic theology and dogma, claiming it has little grounding in the Bible. In Neopaganismthis is manifested as the " Goddess movement. This meant that the other subjects including Philosophy existed primarily to help with theological thought.

To meet that objection, or at least to challenge it, let me state for you the two controlling principles underlying everything that I have said. If a committed creationist wrote a book called The Evolution Delusion, but only attacked the general public's understanding of evolution, we'd naturally dismiss them as disingenuous.

Some of Kant's writings in the early s attracted the favorable notice of respected philosophers such as J. He published important works on plantsanimalsand natural theology, with the objective "to illustrate the glory of God in the knowledge of the works of nature or creation".

Atheism becomes as meaningless as theism. When he accepted Christianity, he found nothing in Christianity that at that time was incompatible with the scientific knowledge of his day.

But if God were like everything else in mode of being, God would be totally like everything else, a proposition we have already rejected.

Chapter 5. However, it is not so much reality that is self-affirming, but the creative order structuring reality which manifests itself to us.

Commenting on his blog, Coyne sarcastically used the phrase "sophisticated theology" to describe Haught's arguments: [13] [Haught] lost the debate; his ideas were exposed for the mindless theological fluff that they were; and I used his words against him, showing that even "sophisticated" theology, when examined under the microscope of reason, is just a bunch of made-up stuff, tales told by idiots, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

To take refuge in the doctrine of two or more modes of truth, separated into logic-tight compartments, is to embrace an intellectual schizophrenia that is the utter ruin of the human mind.

A Rational Theology

Early Christian theologians, for example, devised doctrines such as absolutiontransubstantiationpurgatoryoriginal sinand the Holy Trinitywhich are based on tenuous interpretations of Bible scripture rather than things clearly expressed in the Bible. In The God DelusionRichard Dawkins expertly demolishes what he calls 'the God hypothesis', but devotes only a few sketchy anecdotes to establishing that this God hypothesis is the one that has defined religious belief through history, or defines it around the world today.

The principle says that we cannot affirm the existence of anything we conceive unless we can show how its existence is needed to explain what we already know exists. The rationale is easy to understand if you think through the implications of the metaphor. His principle was absolutely right.

Kant's philosophy focuses attention on the active role of human reason in the process of knowing the world and on its autonomy in giving moral law. Religion and Rational Theology book is clear also that, as with every other being, the progress of God began with the exercise of his will.

Duping theologians[ edit ] Inatheist philosopher Maarten Boudry committed a Sokal -style hoax against a theology conference [13] by submitting an intentionally absurd abstract, under an anagrammatic pseudonym, [14] that was promptly accepted.

Maybe the sacred and the profane are not mutually exclusive. Sure, critics argue, it might be intriguing, but only a handful of smartypants intellectual religious people take it seriously. I am only saying that God must be conceived as a being about which we can meaningfully ask whether or not it exists, just as we must conceive of a mermaid or Hamlet as a being about which we can ask that existential question.

If the latter proposition is false, there is no valid argument for the existence of God. Critics claimed that, due to this unfamiliarity with the subject, Dawkins had created a straw man of what theology actually says about God and God's existence.

Like Western philosophy, Eastern philosophy can have truth beyond what we know by science, which is the same East and West. Although his other church writings Evidences and Reconciliations, The Gospel in the Service of Man, Guide Posts to Happiness: The Right to Personal Satisfaction, and others proved to be influential, none so thoroughly summarized his embrace of science and Mormonism as Rational Theology.

Chapter 8. In recent decades the study of Hinduism has also been taken up by a number of academic institutions in Europe, such as the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies and Bhaktivedanta College. Similarly, though religion — through revelation — may add truth to the truths learned by both science and philosophy, nothing can be true in religion or as a matter of religious faith that in any way violates or contradicts what we know by science.

Like Eagleton, Orr also objected to Dawkins' dismissal of theologians along with fundamentalists: [3] Having no patience with the faith of fundamentalists, he also tends to dismiss more sophisticated expressions of belief as sophistry he cannot, for instance, tolerate the meticulous reasoning of theologians.Sophisticated theology™, and related phrasings, is a neologism used to deride theological schools and arguments which seek to refute atheism based on the alleged "lack of sophistication" of atheist rhetoric.
