I believe in divine revelation, but I do not accept every sacred book that claims to be such, mainly because they are rationally exclusive.  But I don’t just dismiss them out-of-hand, blindly, I reject them for specific reasons.  Even though they claim to be divine revelation, I put them all through the same grid of reason which is necessary to identify something as revelation.

Two theological schools emerged within Sunni Islam in the ninth century. The first, the Mu’tazalites, said that God is reason and justice. The Mu’tazalites held that man’s first duty is to reason because the existence of God is not self-evident.
