  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 153. The proverb today is seeing

  • is believing. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. We use this proverb seeing

  • is believing in a couple of ways. First people often use it to show that one is

  • skeptical or doubtful about what someone has said. In this case, we mean that

  • unless we see it, we will never believe it. So unless we see it with our own eyes,

  • we're just not going to believe it. The second way it is used is to simply

  • express that the best way to believe something or at least to get people to

  • believe something is by seeing it or experiencing it. Meaning so, we also use

  • it that way. That the only way people believe is by seeing it or believing it.

  • Once seen with one's own eyes, it is hard to deny. Okay. So um let's continue. Some

  • say this problem goes all the way back to the 1600s. All right. And we actually

  • have three examples to cover all this. So here's example number one. Somebody might

  • say I'm skeptical of the existence of aliens, I think most of the photos are

  • fake. You know this sometimes people say this. If I ever personally encounter one,

  • I may change my mind. Seeing is believing. So this kind of

  • covers the idea. It definitely covers the idea of people being skeptical, but it

  • also covers the idea that if you see it, you might believe it. Or number two. The

  • best way for getting people to believe what you are talking about is to show

  • them undeniable proof. Seeing is believing. So it's kind of more

  • like the second way. So you want people to believe. You've got to really show

  • them and then, then they will really believe at that point. Or number three

  • here. Many people who don't believe in ghosts will often say seeing is

  • believing. Any time like a ghost topic comes up and there's somebody that says

  • they think yeah. It's all nonsense. You know maybe people's eyes are playing

  • tricks on them or something like that. They will say well you know, seeing is

  • believing. So maybe if they seen it themselves you know, maybe they might

  • believe it. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-

  • bye.
