Here you betray yourself. How can science be informed by faith, an totally
irrational notion at the best of times? Faith is ultimately a useless
concept. I can have 100% faith in my wife's fidelity, but she could still be
cheating. The Trobriand islanders believe wholeheartedly that Prince Philip
is a god because he came out of the sky in a plane, but I know that he's a
cantankerous old royal git who should have been pensioned off years ago. A
hindu scientist know that the Ganges is seriously polluted with all kinds of
nasty germs that can kill him, but will still bathe because he believes it
is a holy river. If you want to dwell among the facts, faith is the last
port of call you would make.
