May i had the honor to state my arguments in Two main points

1) Maybe had differrent usage than it may be

1.1)In speaking, we sometimes use maybe at the end of what we say when we are making a suggestion which we are not very certain about:

A:

There’s something wrong with my PC. I can’t load my photos.

B:

It could be a virus, maybe.

In speaking, we can use maybe as a response when we agree that something is possible:

2) Maybe is grammatically different from it may be

2.1)Maybe is an adverb and it means the same as perhaps. It is written as one word:

Maybe no one will come to the party.

2.2)In the phrase may be may is a modal verb and be is a main or auxiliary verb. Here may and be are two separate words, whereas maybeis one word

actually, i understand your philosophy of "blinds man rainbow"

(if rainbow cannot be touched , or smelled, or heard, how can a blind man realize the existence of a rainbow?)

However, the better question is - How can we be 100% sure of the existence of rainbow as well?
The images we saw are just electrical impulses from the brain, it could be easily misguided or even faked

Therefore when you say "accept a blinds man story of rainbow" is equal to "accept the doubtful reality beside us"
