Rationalism as a self-imposed blindness

The universe, let alone God’s realm, is vaster than the mind of man can comprehend. Reason is a valid perspective if it is not totalitarian. Reason now admits the facts of science, but it is hostile to the facts of faith. Rationalism thus is a form of self-imposed blindness of a most arrogant sort. It says in effect, there are no fish unless my net catches them.
