    What is believing?

    "Seeing is believing" should I stick to this or do I need to verify before believing.

    Verification is always wise, yes. Scientists learn to observe before trusting their senses. Once you've learned that in one field, say how to distinguish species of grasses, you'll look at the whole world differently. The senses are the best we've got, but they're also usually very untrained and we often see what we expect to see.
