We all believe things we can not prove !
[update: I did this short post listing some of the most interesting “confessions”]
After reading these scientists’ own “leaps of faith”, I was forced to think deeper of confessions I needed to make. It was not that I was averse to such admissions, but it was just that there were several areas of my thinking that I had not yet submitted to such scrutiny.
The difference, as I have written here, between the faith of Atheists and the faith of Theists is, what I have termed, The Sanctification Cloak. I think it is equally important for Atheists to understand that their minds too have faith items and likewise, for Theists to understand that they have actual doctrines which protect themselves from honest scrutiny.
