Truth Decay

“Human reason-ing is affected by sin in that we often do not attend to matters logically or we reason in only a half-buried or slothful way. We employ logical fallacies without knowing it, and our stock of facts from which we argue is sometimes limited in ways that hinder our thinking […] The greatest problem with human reasoning occurs when it vainly attempts to become autonomous of God and divine revelation. This is the fault of human hubris, not of reason itself.”
