Atheists appeal to reason rather than to fairy tales
It is ironic that the writer of the Feb. 27 letter supporting C.S. Lewis’ influential religious writings actually explains why he is not revered by many others.
Many scholars viewed Lewis as a second-rate philosopher who used rhetoric rather than logic but still failed to prove the existence of God in his scholarly works.
In his argument, the writer claims that Lewis “shifted to fiction. Through fantasy, he could appeal to imagination rather than reasoning to promote Christian ideas.”
Could the nonbeliever position be stated any better? Atheists appeal to reason rather than fairy tales when considering beliefs and concepts to live by.
