Dealing with doubt and uncertainty without religion

As Richard Feynman said, "Once you start gets a little harder to believe." But how do you handle uncertainty without religion? For some, it can lead to anxiety or breed extremism. Others learn to embrace it...

William James used to preach the "will-to-believe." For my part, I should wish to preach the "will-to-doubt" .... What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite.
- Bertrand Russell 

Additional online resources
