Bacon´s Support of Faith
In the essays, "Of Atheism" and "Of Superstition", Francis Bacon presents a strong
argument supporting the idea of faith. As is characteristic of most of Bacon's essays, he
approaches each subject in the most scientific of methods, dealing first with the most
basic ideas and following through logically into more complex thoughts. Bacon possesses
the unique style of basing his essay on a certain view point, while in reality supporting the
opposite view point.
