One point made was that knowledge is a cognitive thing – in the head. And that belief is a corporeal thing – deeply heartfelt.
Our discussion went on to explore whether we could believe something without knowing it (eg. God) – or if we could know something without believing it (eg. horrifying medical diagnoses).
And THEN we went on to ponder what word we’d use to join our heart and head – for those times when knowledge and belief commingle (eg. true love). We came up with GUT.
wOw – heavy stuff for a Monday morning, eh? What better time to ponder the imponderable – when we’re fresh & ready to begin again?
What do you think? What’s the difference between knowledge and belief for you? And if there is a difference for you, what word would you use to join them?
