A Note from Narnia

My friend Robin shared a pretty amazing quote with me today. I thought I'd pass it along.

"It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen for physical or chemical reasons to arrange themselves in a certain way this gives me, as a byproduct, the sensation which I call thought. But if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? And if I can’t trust my own thinking I can’t trust the argument leading to atheism, and therefore I have no reason to be an atheist. Unless I believe in God, I can’t believe in thought, so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God.”

-C. S. Lewis (Wikipedia)
