A While Back I Wrote a Piece on Credulity and Skepticism…

which you can read here.  Bottom line, just as despair and presumption are both the enemies of hope, so credulity and skepticism are both the enemies of true faith.

Now a study looks at the ways in which both credulity and skepticism can blind you to reality.  The skeptic will sometimes go to ridiculous length to shore up a theory in the teeth of reality.  The credulous person, likewise, will go on believing something even when it is obviously false.

Healthy faith listens to reason and doesn’t buy every cockamamie claim from every visionary quack.  On the other hand, it also doesn’t cling to dogmatic skepticism in the teeth of obvious evidence that God is at work.
