Out of curiosity, Is a scientist's goal simply to prove "Whats out there", and a person who believes in GOD/"ALLAH" simply has the faith. Neither is wrong in my eyes. A person who whole heartedly believes in the writings/scriptures/word of the lord really works/serves GOD to support, love, and uphold peace for all mankind. A scientist through study and examination is out to prove what he/she finds.

Different people travel different roads to find answers, or shall I say "Understanding" with respect to ones self.

Question:

Is it so wrong that a person simply can't have faith or belief in something unless it's proven?

I do believe, and have faith the utmost respect for the lord whomever I see him/her/it to be, but I accept the fact that other people simply have to prove it, if not by mathematical / scientific means but by any venue that requires proof.

My hopes is to get a response in two facets.

1. By GOD's/"ALLAH"'s written/believed word
2. By your interpretation.
