Argument from the foundation of reason
The argument from the foundation of reason, also known as the argument from the unreasonableness of reason, combines a presuppositional-style attack on reason with the argument from the meaning of life.
- "Reason is not separated from faith; reason is based upon faith."
- "Reason presupposes the existence something more than just matter and energy – it actually presupposes God. "
- Reason is founded on faith (as well as science).
- Other beliefs founded on faith are equally valid.
- We need to believe in God to have meaningful and coherent lives.
- Belief in God using faith is justified.
