ABSTRACT
This article presents the author's views regarding famous scientists who use their accomplishments to pose questions in life and religion. He cites the essay of Steven Weinberg entitled "Without God," which tackles the never ending argument between the existence of God and Weinberg's attempt of finding out what is true and examines carefully the author's stance about God. He concludes that humans are by nature creatures of faith and that are characterized by principles and cultural properties.
