  • Logical and rational within a certain context

    To many people, the Bible is the one source of logic and reason in the modern world. I myself am a secular humanist, but I can see why many people turn to religion in times of trouble, or 'find God' in a euphoric moment. Inexplicable, 'spiritual' occurrences are very easy to pin on a single god or an absolute truth, and whilst I don't believe in any particular god, I can see why people do

  • Monotheism is irrational and illogical.

    There are many many monotheistic gods that are believed in around the world.
    By definition, monotheism is a belief in only one God.

    To maintain any particular monotheistic view in light of its unlikelyhood and lack of logic, is there irrational.
