Truths derived by empiricism can best foster mutual respect

Reader comment on item: On NASA's Strange Priorities

Submitted by Steve Borkowski (United States), Jul 10, 2010 at 16:06

Unfortunately, certainty in people' religious beliefs unconsciously makes for stubbornness in believers minds towards other people's beliefs. And yet, no one has yet proven the existence of the fundamental basis of their religion. When all truly understand that they don't know, I believe their would be no religious wars and we can go back to having wars primarily based on survival which I feel would be more eesily resolved since no one will be willing to die to go to a heaven they are not sure exists. Peace.
