Thought For the Day: It Is Wrong For Anyone, Anywhere To Believe In Anything Absent Sufficient Evidence

“It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.” – William Kingdon Clifford, mathematician and philosopher (4 May 1845-1879)

It takes a strong contrarian to look at all the impossibilities of life on our planet, particularly of mankind and not see the overwhelming evidence for a god, if not the God.  This evidence being abundantly had with the merest of empirical observations of the odds, the question remaining is which God.  That takes a great deal of thinking and then yes faith.  Some arrive there through faith then thinking.  The importance is the arrival not how you get there.  All the same, I liked this quote today as it is suitable in these particular times and the divergent views held on so many topics.
