Christianity, Islam, Judaism, faith, doubt and fanaticism

I happened upon a thought-provoking TED talk this morning, about an agnostic Jewish woman (Lesley Hazleton) who spent several years studying Muhammad and his revelation of the Quran. She discusses how he had doubt about what happened to him that night and it’s doubt that forms up the very fibre of our faith: a point that applies to all of us, regardless of what we believe (or don’t believe).

Despair is self-fulfilling. If we call something impossible, we act in such a way that we make it so.
-Lesley Hazleton
