That got philosophical (and a jot confrontational) out of nowhere...

The belief in anything, however grounded in evidence or not, is why most of us do what we do. From the belief in a higher power sending me to church, to the belief in tasty venison sending me into the woods, the decision, based on experiential or non-experiential belief, usually supersedes the requisite of proof.

Invoke the requisite of proof, and life slows down the speed of the scientific process. Not my cup of tea
