Quote of the Day, 12-12-08

“There are metaphysical problems, which cannot be disposed of by declaring them meaningless. For, as I have repeatedly said, they are ‘beyond physics’ indeed and demand an act of faith. We have to accept this fact to be honest. There are two objectionable types of believers: those who believe the incredible and those who believe that ‘belief’ must be discarded and replaced by ‘the scientific method.'” -Max Born

  1. Yes. We all have our own ideas and we might be right or wrong. Believing in something doesn’t make it so in spite of what some people think. Equally, though, lack of belief is no proof that something is wrong or doesn’t exist.
