Ted Talk: The Gospel of Doubt

Casey Gerald from Dallas, Texas, educated at Yale and Harvard Business School examines the question: “What do you do when your firmly held beliefs turn out not to be true?”  In this TED talk Gerald examines what he calls the Gospel of Doubt; could this be something that Christianity need to think about more?

The gospel of doubt does not ask that you stop believing, it asks that you believe a new thing: that it is possible not to believe. It is possible the answers we have are wrong, it is possible the questions themselves are wrong. Yes, the gospel of doubt means that it is possible that we, on this stage, in this room, are wrong. Because it raises the question, “Why?” With all the power that we hold in our hands, why are people still suffering so bad?
