taken from the fourth chapter of the 'Big Book', the basic text of Alcoholics Anonymous, titled 'We Agnostics':


That was natural, but let us think a little more closely. Without knowing it, had we not been brought to where we stood by a certain kind of faith? For did we not believe in our own reasoning? Did we not have confidence in our ability to think? What was that but a sort of faith? Yes, we had been faithful, abjectly faithful to the God of Reason. So in one way or another, we discovered that faith had been involved all the time!

I'm not familiar with the context for this passage. Is this faith in a God of Reason presented as a good thing?

This is a dumb, common equivocation.  What were you wanting to discuss?
