Soren Kierkegaard

This quote was added by malevolarky
No glance is so sharp-sighted as that of faith, and yet, humanly speaking, faith is blind; for reason, understanding, is, humanly speaking, the faculty of seeing, but faith is against the understanding.

To say that faith is against the understanding is nonsensical. Faith is another faculty of understanding, another source of information. Because of this, not all faith is equal, for faith, for it to actually be faith, must have an object. It is the object of faith that determines its worth. Therefore it is much like other sources of information. Some are poor and unreliable. Others are sure and certain.
