I watched a movie last night called “Thirteen Conversations About One Thing.” One line from the movie resonates in my mind. “Faith is the antithesis of proof.”
FAITH:
firm belief in something for which there is no proof
ANTITHESIS:
Late Latin, from Greek, literally, opposition
PROOF:
the cogency of evidence that compels acceptance by the mind of a truth or a fact
So faith is a mysterious force. You can have faith in the unknown, but once you accept its truth or factuality faith is no longer possible. I wonder, maybe some things are better left unknown.
