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.
