Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is to show certain similarities between rationality of formal sciences and rationality of religious discourse. These similarities can be seen when analysing the ways in which the well-known Gödel’s incompleteness theorem is justified. The main idea of the paper is that these two types of rationality are not dichotomous. This is so, because even in such formalised areas of rationality like mathematics and logics, mutual influences of rational and non-rational elements can be, unexpectedly, found.
