“Reason is a whore, the greatest enemy that faith has.” – Martin Luther
Martin Luther didn’t have much good to say about reason. He likened reason to the Devil’s bride, a “pretty whore” that comes in and thinks she’s wise in what she says and that her words come from Providence. And indeed we treat reason like a whore using her to support our twisted logic and bolster our world view.
