On Reason. Abridged from Cumberland's Plain Reasons
Reason, Religion, Epistemology, Christianity, Natural Theology, Infidelity
Pythagoras of Samos , Plato
Attempts to confute deism by arguing that, without the Christian revelation, little can be known of God. Points to the lack of a rational monotheism in the Augustan age, and argues that the moderns are no better placed to develop a religion of reason independent of revelation.
