Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

If it becomes apparent that a religious system is no longer congruent with a dispassionate view of the world, it does not make sense to attempt to save it at all costs, eg. by warping its basic principles to make it fit into the modern world view.

  1. Such a system, especially if it has held the attention of a significant number of people for a long time, has no doubt got much to say, if only in a literary way as a quarry for figures of speech or as a place where the great moral or philosophical questions are illuminated, if not adequately answered.
  2. We must not be deceived into thinking, however, that treating a religious system in this way is the same as believing in it on its own terms.
