The assertions of the spiritually blind

telescope-sam-11-300x223You may put a telescope into the hands of a man who is blind, and bid him to look at some distant star, or on some lovely landscape. He tells you he see nothing. Well, his witness is true. So the Agnostic affirms of all supernatural religion, that he knows it not. His witness also is true. But if the blind man goes further, and asserts, that because he sees nothing there is nothing to see, his assertion is untrue and his witness is worthless because he speaks beyond the range of his capacity. Such is the true value of the natural man’s opinion when he declares his mind on spiritual things.
