Belief on the Edge

The great website EDGE sponsors a yearly symposium on some issue related to the crossroads of science and philosophy. This year's question: "What do you believe is true even though you cannot prove it?" Lots of responses, some better then others of course, but all thought provoking. The implications for Jewish life and teaching should be clear. (NYT also takes note.)

Reminds us of Rabbi Shalom Carmy's recent volume from ATID, Letter To A Philosophical Dropout From Orthodoxy, in which he deals with this issue head-on. Read more about it here. Purchase copy here.
