Lord Russell condemns such reasoning as going against eudemonia- human flourishing- well-being. He preaches instead use the conservation -backdrop- of knowledge to acquire more knowledge.
Such reasoning is anti-intellectual. People who use it make fools of themselves, and want others to do likewise, no matter the consequences!
Such reasoning approves of faith-healing and exorcism.
Such reasoning approves of economic voo-doo!
Such reasoning approves of intolerance?
Such reasoning has kept humanity from enjoying eudemonia!
Russell would pity such people! They blaspheme themselves!
