Are you asking if it is stupid to believe in something if the human mind (or just your mind) isn't capable of logically proving it's existence?
"It is the most important function of art and science to awaken this feeling and keep it alive in those who are receptive to it.
The cosmic religious feeling is the strongest and noblest reason for scientific research." -Albert Einstein
There is nothing we can 'know' or prove with out a doubt to be true. All our axioms are based on false foundations. We don't know the sun will come up tomorrow, we don't know what goes up must come down. We don't know if this exists.
What Einstein didn't realize is that his theories themselves were relative. They are both true and not true.
The only knowing is an unknowing of everything, then what is left is something that cannot be falsified or corrupted etc. The rest is a sillyness based on things like A = A. The truth is A really = X
