I have a habit of knocking faith and religion because of how people usually use them. Yet I have very little issue with the basic premise that faith can be used to explain reality. The weird thing is I found an interest in Boetheus and faith when reading, A Confederacy of Dunces. Reason and faith may both be equally valid ways of explaining reality, but unlike Boetheus I see others who may share this belief feeling a need to express themselves through faith in the face of adversity and evil. How far modern man has fallen from Boetheus. Backwards towards the middle ages. How many here or anywhere else have read Consolation of Philosophy, the most widely read and translated work after the Bible for a millennium?
