I’m currently reading this book called No God but One, and have come across this amazing text.
It is virtually impossible to study these matters objectively. Not only do we all have a vested interest in defending the faiths we and our social circles have believed for years, but our beliefs color the way we receive information. The same data will be interpreted differently by people from disparate worldviews…our presuppositions affect the way we interpret the evidence, and we often see what we want to see.
What a compelling observation. That is one of the most intellectual things I’ve read in years.
