Well, there was an impromptu answer for an instance where there just wasn't a known answer. It's interesting my own father was raised in a Catholic setting, but then he was very, very interested in science as well. I think that true artistic and critical side I have came from my mother's father, who was an artist, poet and deep thinker like few people I know.
I'm not really 100% sure how my dad balanced it all; he remained a church going individual until he passed away, but if I had to guess he wasn't a strict adherent to the myth of Eden like that.
blessed is he who believes in things unseen...man that just sounds so open-ended to me, because does that include the paranormal, UFO's, shadow people on all that good stuff Art Bell would bring up? And where do you draw the line, and how do you decide that? That statement sums up what Dr. Sagan said on the subject; faith is the belief in the absence of evidence.
I think that's one of the things that led me to science...the closest to faith that science gets is that has to rest on the foundation of theories until they get replaced or proven by scientific law, but it's open to the fact that eventually, science gets it wrong and has to revise things. Science really doesn't ask you to believe, it asks you to accept the truth as it finds it out.
Most of these religions that want to give you this belief set are pretty much of the idea that this is how it is, and that's it. What arrogant little primates we are to think we've got it all settled with a few aging holy books...maybe those that believe in the unseen are blessed, but IMHO the clever will try and figure it out for themselves.
