I know you may read the title of the post and think this is a joke but out of all honesty it's not. I really wonder what it's like being blind, how
much trust you have to put into your other senses and the people around you. That is why I don't believe in that phrase "Seeing is believing".
Because it's not always true instance the phrase "I cannot believe what I am seeing". I think we put way to much trust into what our eyes tell us
we forget about all our other senses (even the ones beyond the 5).
Let's say you are in a supposed haunted house and you are skeptical, you live by that phrase "seeing is believing". You walking down a hallway and
feel cold and all of the sudden you feel a little push on your back, and you look back to see what it was and see nothing, therefore nothing is there
it was your own clumsiness. Now is that the best possible and logical answer?
Here's a thought... what happens if our eyes are not as apt as we think? That there is more to see than meets the eye so to say? For instance the
human eye can only pick up light waves from infrared to ultraviolet. We can hear sound but we cannot see sound. We can feel cold but we cannot see
Blind people have such a different way of life if you think about it, if you tell a blind man "A chicken crossed the road." How could he tell if a
chicken really did cross the road? He would have to trust you, or to have faith in what you say is true. How would a blind man experience a ghost, a
UFO, or alien abduction, or religion? Their senses are tuned differently than ours. We people who "see" think we know everything there is to know,
we know more than they do because we "see" but do we really?
