Verona, Italy by Jeff Murphy

Leap of Faith [2000 - 2003 ]: Raised in a Catholic Family, I was indoctrinated within an intense religious belief system, beliefs that I shared with my parents until college. However, after I was exposed to a larger picture of the world, my faith began to crumble.Though I realize that there are scientists who believe in the spiritual, I have concluded that they have been able to make that leap of faith which the Danish philosopher Kierkegaard wrote about. However, as much as I would like to make this leap, I cannot. I cannot reconcile my understanding of logic and scientific methodology with my desire for the spiritual.
