And thank you for the kind words. Of course, any BPS OCD PTSD ADD such as myself immediately needs to see what he or she did right. ;^)

I guess if I could go back and add anything, it would be this:

Questioning your faith is in a sense a search for Truth. Most of the time, we confuse that with looking for the truth, for which we believe we require proof.

Ask any informed scientist, tho, and you'll find that science isn't based on truths and it may not even be able to address anything of the Truth. Science is based on falsification, not verification ... we root out falsehoods until we find something we cannot find fault with at that moment, but it isn't expected to be true. Science is also based on underdetermination. A good scientist knows we will never be able to fully explain existence through science (alone).

Back to faith and doubt. What strengthens my faith is when all the proofs I can obtain fall short, often far short, of the truth at the least, and of Truth whatsoever. If you can proof for your faith -- well, this is just my lil' ol' humble opinion -- I think you're asking the wrong questions or looking in the wrong place.
