What is knowledge Can we as a whole actually be certain of our knowledge If so how Are we not all based upon illusions and misconceptions which in actuality create our society today Knowledge is supported and evidenced by faith or by the arrogance of religion Faith is supported by psychological beliefs that have little or no proven evidence By simply believing and having this faith a person creates a rationale for accepting ideas and happenings Truth is seen from this faith On the contrary knowledge is also acquiesced by scientific or empirical based theories By ignoring religious beliefs in miracles revelations and other unexplained occurrences the search for knowledge is primarily founded upon facts and tests of the natural sciences A primary facet of faith coincides with the acceptance of religious standpoints Thus with the approval of science-based evidence there is an arrogance or disapproval of religion as the source knowledge Therefore there are two different perspectives that proclaim to maintain the certainty of knowledge justification by faith alone and the neglect of religion or evidence from specific observations These two arguments serve as the basis of the search for the certainty of knowledge Though many of these theories represent justified claims an absolute truth of knowledge has still not been resolved Therefore in reality the uncertainty of knowledge is in fact unknown and will continue to remain unknown as long as the question of faith still lingers Not a single person is born with truth but is rather authoritatively ordained with his knowledge whether it be through scientific or religious means All is based upon a single thread of evidence or the recklessness of opinions or assumptions Philosophers have sometimes construed the problems of justification as though they were problems concerning the knowledge possessed by a social group and it does of course make perfectly good sense to ask what statements we are justified in believing and why we are justified
