Topic 6 DQ2Many believe naturalism (atheism) emphasizes intellect and reason, while religions emphasizefaith. Pope John Paul II made the following profound statement at the beginning of hisEncyclical Letter Fides et Ratio:"Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation oftruth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth – in a word, to knowhimself – so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness oftruth about themselves" (Catholic Church & John Paul II, 1998, p. 1).
