and what's beyond the common senses?

All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.

- Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)

and what's beyond the common senses?

Inspired by Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)'s quote, "All our knowledge begins with the senses, proceeds then to the understanding, and ends with reason. There is nothing higher than reason.". The titled responsion is...

There is nothing higher than reason. The reason is the higher power. Reason is higher than God because of his inherent nature, or rather, his transcendent nature. Reason is above God as the supreme being and so can do whatever it wills and does. The reason is the highest God. The reason is the source of morality; the reason is the origin of law and the creator of all things. We are bound to it, therefore we are moral beings.

If you believe in God, the argument goes, then the reason must be something else. The only thing that God could be using to justify himself is the reason, which he can use to justify everything. He has a reason for everything, even the smallest things. Thus, we can see that God is nothing higher than reason. That is why, if God exists, there is nothing higher than reason. So, I have nothing against the argument that says there is nothing higher than reason. I just don't buy the idea that God can use the reason to justify anything, especially the things he doesn't want you to do.

If God existed, then he could use his reason to make us better. He could use it to make us more moral. He could use it to make us free. He could use it to help us build up our strength for the future. He could use it to teach us the answers to those questions we have about life. All he could not use it for would be the things that are contrary to his nature.
