What about the science of faith? The psychology of faith. The origin of faith. Man at one point felt we were at the center of the universe. How when it was determined that we revolve around the sun not visa versa, the acts of the mind to repress the knowledge. There was ignorance and there was coersion. Man did not allow such new information to come out for they feared it and its reprecussions. So the faith became stronger to quelch the fear. So in the light of a newer and truer science came a newer and stronger faith. One that now casted shadows over science, the ideal the mind feared. And now today, the same games are played. Faith is ever growing in order to fight the gains of science. Science has not disproved the existance of god, but has certainly disproved the proof of which people have here on earth of god's existance. But then the faith grows even stronger among this proof for the fear heightens. The fear that we are all alone in this vast dark and empty vessal of the universe. The faith that hides the fear of man's psyche. The one thing we fear from most of all, is being alone. We do not want be all alone in this existance. So we speak to a god that is in our mind and we become comforted. The comfort is real, but god is merely an illusion. A simple allusion that makes us feel that someone in this universe cares about us. That someone does have control over the nature that surrounds us. That someone will be there for us even after we no longer live.
