"Richard Feynman on doubt, uncertainty and religion"

Agree or disagree, like him or loathe him, the man had interesting things to say.

I love Feynman, and his discourse on living with doubt and uncertainty rings true to me. I suspect, that like so many things, there is a Bell curve of people's ability [or willingness] to accept and live with uncertainty and doubt in their lives. Some of us [fortunately or unfortunately] seem to be very accepting of high levels of doubt and uncertainty.

And, like many other human variations, your place on the intelligence curve doesn't have to match up with your place on the doubt/uncertainty curve.


His book, "Six Easy Pieces" is a great book for people who are interested in physics, but who do not have a background in it at all!

He explains things extremely well in it.


I wish he could have lived long enough to go to Tani Tuva.
