True science does not admit a belief, as that admits a doubt.
Therefore, call no one master but one--and that is Science,
and by this must all things be proved.

Difference Between Knowledge & Wisdom

How often we hear this remark, “I never believe anything, until I understand it.” There is more truth than poetry in this remark; for a belief is not wisdom. It may be knowledge, but if it is, it is of this world and not of science. True science does not admit a belief, as that admits a doubt.

Now where does the author of this remark stand in regard to wisdom (or science)? Does the remark show any wisdom superior to that of the community? Jesus answered this question, himself - as a man - and showed the people the difference between a belief (or the wisdom of this world) and the wisdom of God (or science). When asked a question, he said, "I - that is Christ - judge no man; for science (or wisdom) is the standard." But again he said, "If I - the man Jesus - judge, my judgment is not good; for it is of this world.”

If it is true (or of the scientific world) - it is not judgment, but wisdom. Therefore, all judgment is submitted to science, where everyone's opinion receives its reward; whether it be of good or evil. Therefore, call no one master but one - and that is science; and by this must all things be proved. The wisdom of this world is made up of opinions and decided by evidence, not by truth. If truth decided, there would be no need of a judge - for the judge is in the science (or truth).
