Why would anyone be anti-rationality, anti-critical thinking, or anti-reason? The answer has to do with people's misunderstandings of what these terms mean, and more to the point, what they do not mean. This problem could best be understood by thinking of the "Spock" character in Star Trek. He is highly logical, but lacks emotion, and frankly, he's kind of a dick. I have heard too many people justify superstitious, irrational, and faith-based beliefs as a way to "balance" their humanity by experiencing life on a more emotional or "spiritual" level. These people are half right, and half wrong. They are right in that a life devoid of emotion, imagination, and passion is not much of a life at all. They are wrong in believing that these experiences require the suspension of rationality, the need to embrace the supernatural, or the need to believe something disproportionate to the evidence.
