first, what is faith? is faith not a belief in that which has little or no evidence? is it not? if something had sufficient evidence for it, would it still require faith to believe in it? can we say, therefore, that faith is a belief in something which has insufficient evidence to merit a belief? if the above is true then would an all-intelligent being- the supreme of all intellectuals and that which is true- find it applaudable, even holy, one who believes in something without enough reason for doing so? what would He gain from rewarding one who lowers his standards of evidence-needed-for-belief? why would this be a holy trait? what is to be gained of this by either party?
