MINIATURE COURSE: RELIGION
RELIGION IS THE DOGMA OF PROOF
We have considered already the territory of
Atheism and Unitarianism (not to be confused
with Utilitarianism). Now we consider the
philosophical tradition of religion.
Religion offers many secret proofs. Thomas
Aquinas, a Catholic philosopher, offers proofs
of God's existence. Eastern tractatuses are
known to exist in Zen Buddhism as well that
affirm the idea of God, or some other idea.
What is interesting is that the providence of
faith may be based on the providence of an
unconscious reassurance, be it psychological,
auracular, or hegemonic.
What is found in Zen, Kant, and Aquinas, is just
this form of reassurance, that may be
psychological, therefore rational, auracular,
therefore based upon evidence, or hegemonic,
therefore based on rational origins of
As an idea of populism also, there is a
hegemonic-like interest of preserving the
interests of all people. What is desired then
may not be proof, it may be something that is
way beyond proof. But as such it has an
imperative to borrow all proof available. Modus
tollendum, it must rely on proof as a minimum.
