Doubt is not a belief. It is a LACK of belief.
Science is BUILT upon the slow systematic elimination of DOUBT through study, testing, analysis, peer review and proof. The goal is to create a body of knowledge that can not be doubted because every piece is built upon independently repeatable observations of reality.
Belief is BUILT upon the suppression/repression
of doubt through repetitive affirmation of unverifiable statements arbitrarily made by certain charismatic people in history. The statements are accepted as 'true' only because of WHO said them.
