Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 5. May, 7, 1947


Let it be clearly stated first that we agree with Professor Taylor on his fundamental point, that is—It is obvious that doubt is an integral part of the normal functioning of intelligence and that this intelligence is to be regarded as being effective in all spheres of thought. Religious dogmas, therefore, cannot be considered as exempt from critical enquiry. We make this statement in order that we may safeguard ourselves against misinterpretation.

Such misinterpretation is likely to be forthcoming in view of the fact that we believe that in disposing of religious dogma Taylor has not adequately dealt with the function of religious experience. To us there appears no necessary conflict between the "fundamental basis of religious faith" (rightly interpreted) "and of University Education."
