No need for epistemological hostility here. It is obvious that you believe what
you say is true. Your talents for analogy impress me. If the nature of science
is doubt, shouldn't you at least have faith in your methods? As for the trees, if photosynthesis is prayer, I feel
the need for enlightenment. Why are science and religion so different? Neither of
them lead to proof.
