How do I read your display name? Exactly as it sounds, of course :P (it says "My name is Dan" in broad, phonemic IPA transcription).

comment What is the basis for not believing sola-scriptura?
But... these are the most convincing arguments I've heard. In reality, everyone holds human reason as the final authority to some extent. This is where the joy of hermeneutics begins :) But I had to jump in since the existing answers don't seem to cover the most prominent objections.

comment What is the basis for not believing sola-scriptura?
@Caleb there are indeed some non sequiturs in this argument, and it is certainly not up-to-snuff per academic standards (there is not enough time to develop each point in the depth needed - I just linked to others who do). And... I could just as easily demolish my own arguments. The main one I would stand by is that sola scriptura elevates human reason as the ultimate authority over the text (not to say that alternatives don't as well).
