Do scientists act by faith?
Some time ago, i read an article written by Paul davies, and i get surprised, because he said that faith is closer to science than we think.
When someone asks you what makes a sciencist , or what is "Science", normally you can answer that a scientist tries to see reality and asks himself questions about "What happens here?" or "how can this happen?", and then scientist create an hypothesis and accepts it or not according to the results of their studies.
However, What are the basis of science? I want to say, the reality that we see, that we feel...is the true reality? Can science prove anything with certainty without any exception at 100%? Why the universe had been created so that we can demonstrate and describe things that we see with a logical reasoning? It could be that the reality that we see is false and scientists also believe and act by faith. I have discussed that with one friend and i got hurt because he said to me: oh, you
believe in science, you are a great believer!!...
