Benjamin McLean Posted about 2 years ago Is Faith inherently irrational? Faith is assumption. Faith is at the back of all chains of logical reasoning. You can't reason without premises to reason from and you can't get your initial premises without making assumptions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foundationalism This phrase "inaccurate appointment" seems to mean "inappropriate" and who is to be the judge of what is appropriate and what is not? Rationality is not a particular set of beliefs or epistemological framework. It is adherence to the fundamental laws of thought and that's all.
