← Collision: Christopher Hitchens vs. Douglas Wilson

Reason and Bible are not comparable in the slightest.

Referencing the "Bible" is to refer to a physical object - an ancient tome with a finite number of pages. A beginning and an end.

Referencing "Reason" is to refer to a potentially infinite PROCESS of deduction.

Perhaps Wilson's deduction consisted of the following:
"Reason" = Noun...
and
"Bible" = Noun...
This means that "Reason" <> "Bible"

Some of the neurobiological wiring must be jammed in these peoples' logic centers.
