A Source For Truth

Is it reasonable to look within man for truth? Man who is born with imperfections, dependencies, and a mortal body that slowly dies from the moment of conception. Is it not more reasonable for man to see his nature being imperfect and ultimately corrupt as a reason to look for his antithesis as the source for truth? An imperfect, dependent, and mortal being should naturally assume the existence of a perfect, independent, and immortal being. This should then lead to a subordinate view of man below the immortal perfect being that must of necessity be above and superior to all that exists.

Therefore, faith and belief in a god is far more reasonable than the denial of a superior existence. The only reason we know we are imperfect is because something perfect must exist. Those who deny the possibility of a perfect being existing deny their own imperfection, deem themselves a god among men and therefore define perfection by their imperfect perception and existence. Is this not the behavior of insane men? Did not Hitler take this view to it's logical end? He deemed himself a god and became the one who sought to define perfection by getting rid of what he thought to be imperfect.

Men who deny God and yet live peaceably with other men deny their own supposed godlike nature by living equal to and not above other men. If they be a god, they are not one worthy of worshiping, let alone worth listening to.
