Act Of Faith Quotes (2 quotes)
So I want to admit the assumption which the astronomerand indeed any scientistmakes about the Universe he investigates. It is this: that the same physical causes give rise to the same physical results anywhere in the Universe, and at any time, past, present, and future. The fuller examination of this basic assumption, and much else besides, belongs to philosophy. The scientist, for his part, makes the assumption I have mentioned as an act of faith; and he feels confirmed in that faith by his increasing ability to build up a consistent and satisfying picture of the universe and its behavior.
You can certainly destroy enough of humanity so that only the greatest act of faith can persuade you that whats left will be human.
