A Quote by Dr. Gregory Walter Graffin on faith, religion, evidence, and society

Faith in your partner, your fellow men, your friends, is very important, because without it there's no mutual component to your relationship, and relationships are important. So faith plays an important role, but faith in people you don't know, faith in religious or political leaders or even people on stages, people who are popular in the public eye, you shouldn't have faith in those people. You should listen to what they have to say and use it. It might give you some ideas on how to view the world, but ultimately you have to base your views on evidence. Evidence comes from your own eyes and ears. But of course this [philosophy] is in a society where the concept of "cool" doesn't apply and unfortunately we're far away from that.
