Quotable – Quotes
I do not believe in believing. My approach is to know, and knowing is a totally different dimension. It starts from doubt; it does not start from believing. The moment you believe
in something, you have stopped inquiring. Belief is one of the most poisonous things to destroy human intelligence. All the religions are based on belief; only science is based on doubt. And I would like the religious inquiry also to be scientific, based on doubt, so that we need not believe but we can come to know the truth of our being, and the truth of the whole universe.
