My problem with faith

March 14, 2007

(apart from my not seeming to have been born with any, that is)

is that it seems incapable of answering the vital question, “Is the object of my faith the right one?”

Or rather, faith by its nature always answers “Yes,” which is worse than not having an answer at all.

Rather than the Will to Believe, I will, like Betrand Russell, go with the Will to Find Out.
