Without the belief that it is possible to grasp reality with our theoretical constructions, without the belief in the inner harmony of our world, there could be no science. This belief is and always will remain the fundamental motive for all scientific creation.

    I don’t think many people say that one shouldn’t have believe, just that you should have believe in an invisible being with scrappy evidence.
    I have faith that my packaged foods wont rot, sure, but that’s because I have a history of my packaged foods not rotting. I can’t say I have much faith for my prayers, because, as everyone preaches, when you pray you can get three responses, Yes, No, or Later, which basically means, what will happen, will happen.
