I'll be talking about miracles today. Also religious art and kitsch, the Mayan apocalypse, and why folks occasionally see faces that aren't there. Even by my standards, this post rambles a bit.
Quite a few folks act as if they think faith and reason, religion and science, have about as much to do with each other as cheese and Wednesday.
Some go a step further, and blame the world's woes on religion.
The antics of loudly-religious folks don't help make faith look like a reasonable, or safe, part of today's world.
I think faith isn't reason, but that it's reasonable. I also think that an honest search for truth doesn't threaten faith. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 31-35, 159; "Fides et Ratio;" "Gaudium et Spes," 36)
