Thontor, if there is one thing I have learned, it is that faith is synonmyous with blindness. It is grasping for beliefs because someone told you to. For instance, if one looks at geolical evidence you can see the earth is billions of years old, and that life evolved. This is emperical, proven fact. Everything bespeaks it. When you ask a Christian about this, they say, no, we accept Genesis on faith. But they have NOTHING to back it up! Faith is also synonymous with fear. It is saying, "Ok, I have to believe this or I am in danger of eternal hell." Realize the fallacy here. We live on what is a remarkable planet, surrounded by amazing, diverse, evolved life (from such simple beginnings!), and we are directly tied to the earth, not to some violent desert god who needs sacrifices! We are simply part of the wierd phenomenon of life, not a grand, cosmic (self serving) scheme. Look at how amoral all is, and you will see that God is either A. Bloodthirsty, or B. In a ceremonial role as some sort of phsyics rulemaker.
