• Complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
• Strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.
Anyone can make up any number of things that come to their imagination.
But, when they are posited as true in a public forum, it is incumbent upon that individual or group to produce a reason why others should believe that it is true, and justify why they hold it.
Faith, is an assertion of absolute conviction, that is assumed independent of evidence.
And which must be defended against all evidence to the contrary.
So, i ask.. If you have faith, why do you have it?
What other areas in your life need faith to justify/rationalize a belief?
► What do i believe?
► Why do i believe it?
► How did i come to believe it?
► Do i believe it because it makes me feel good?
► Do i believe it out of fear of punishment?
Talk about this stuff with people, and not just those who share your view.
If you believe that you have evidence to support your claim, then present it.
"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."
