OK, now to get a little technical: induction is what it is called when you make a theory based on enough examples you observe. You drop a rock, it falls. Drop it again, it falls again. At some point, you say that anytime one drops a rock, it will fall, based on the evidence. Now, I pride myself a scientist, but I also have aspirations to being a saint. Some people think that one cannot be rational and also have faith. I disagree. Myself, I have observed evidence after evidence that what I have faith in has truth to it, even if I do not understand it all at once. It came to an “inductive pop”. This is the point where the evidence has accumulated so that you must trust the validity of the theory, based on what you rationally know. At some point, it became irrational not to believe. And I hope to “pop” a few of you out there. And so it goes.
