No one is without dogma

G_K_ChestertonThere are only two kinds of people, those who accept dogmas and know it,
and those who accept dogmas and don’t know it.

–G. K. Chesterton

Everyone takes leaps of faith

erwinAs antiquated as it may sound, it’s not that some people chose to live by faith, but that all human beings must live by faith, even if it’s faith in reason.
We all live by faith
. . . it’s that we don’t have any other option. Anyone who is not all-knowing has faith in their future.
Some people take leaps of faith; others go there kicking and screaming.
In either case we all find ourselves in the same place.
We have to make choices,
draw conclusions,
embrace beliefs,
that in the end are
acts of faith.
Even if you chose not to believe, that in itself is a HUGE leap of faith.
