Q&A: Is seeing believing or is believing seeing?

In the context of Science, seeing (direct or indirect observations with or without instruments) is  believing (accepting as truth).

In the Religious context (God, after-life, heaven, hell, angels,…) believing (genuinely and sincerely accepting with the heart) is seeing (accepting a truth).

Most normal human beings function (need to function) in both contexts.

Mixing up the two, often inadvertently, can lead to conflicts and confusions.
