Data Crowds Out Faith

“If only I could know. If only there were more evidence.” How many times have you heard these statements or ones similar?

Seth Godin published an article on Seth’s Blog that “Too much data leads to not enough belief”. His point is that you gather data and then more data, but it is never enough to take that leap of faith.

It isn’t just true in the business world, of course. Most of all, his article hits the nail on the head when he says, “The skeptic will always find a reason.”


  1. ….and I suppose the corollary to that is: The believer will always find a reason to believe.

    I've heard many ministers say this, but I heard it first from Charles Stanley: Everyone has faith. In something. The question is where your faith is based.
