The Science & Faith Paradox

2 posts in this topic

There's always that controversy about how science and religion don't mesh. How one is based on the unknown and requires faith while the other doesn't accept an idea until there's hard cold evidence to back it up.

But in the world of science, isn't faith required to discover whether or not something is worthy of being deemed fact or fiction? With all the insistent studies to cure diseases, researches on what might be out there in space, and even simple things like what might happen if two chemicals are mixed... isn't there a level of faith there to give the drive to discover in the first place?

And to look at the situation in vice versa, isn't all religion and faith based on some sort of fact to begin with? If you say no, then are you calling history a sham?
