Abstract:
This work aspires to reconcile Reason & Revelation, but not through the traditional method of demonstrating the rationality of Faith. Here, we will explicitly deny that faith is or should be rational; instead, our reconciliation will be achieved through demonstrating the essentially dogmatic, axiomatic, and subjective nature of rationalism and empiricism. Throughout, our claims are justified through reference to cutting-edge research in cognitive science, physics, linguistics, etc. Our demonstration unfolds over the course of four examinations: in the first section, we define the limits of reason, observation, and language while advancing a positive methodology of absurdist empiricism. In the second investigation, we demonstrate the cannibalistic nature of epistemology in light of modern advances in cognitive science; simultaneously, we propose a positive methodology of epistemic pluralism. Our third demonstration posits that modern advances in physics have rendered consequentialism incoherent. Finally, we demonstrate the perversity of the traditional reconciliations while positing a Divine Mandate AntiTheory of Ethics.
