Believing in something simply because it is convenient, cool, easy or convincing is what he is against. But a lot of what he said in that series made a lot of sense to me. He explained things I have already felt and was never quite certain where they were from. Besides, watching his videos was part of my own pursuit of truth and knowledge. I definitely gauge it with my own experience and knowledge because I know all too well that blind faith (belief) will forever suspend one in darkness. Mostly I liked his take on this reality and others. I try not to be ignorant and believe it just because its so badass, but its hard not to be attracted to something like that lol.
Faith is a belief *in something*. Faith doesn't require any proof or evidence. Although, if something is then proven, then you can't have faith in it anymore, because it's now a known. Get it?
If Tom (or ANYONE, for that matter) says something that you feel makes a lot of sense... then definitely pursue it and try to find your own personal truth within that context. That's the best way to go about any discoveries. All of my personal truths grew from within my own experiences.
As you said, Kyle, gauge it within your own experiences and knowledge. Truthfully, that's really the only thing you can do. I think you've got the right mindset going into this!
