You can't really have faith in nothing... Just sayin'... It is technically impossible... Unless you live in Fantasia...

I think the lowest tier of faith is faith in one's self alone... Even if you don't have a deity, you at least have faith in yourself... else you wouldn't exist...

I have faith that any understanding I have of the divine is at some level a misunderstanding.

I was trying not to generalize.

I'm fine being accountable for my actions. I would just like the eternal life thing to be true.

I'm not sure eternal anything wouldn't be exceptionally boring.

This is actually a good way of looking at it...

If you can have faith in existence, then why can't you have faith in inexistance?

For example, most christians have faith in the existence of christ, and also faith in the inexistance of marduk, son of ea, slayer of tiamat.

I believe in boobies. How about we start a religion on that? It's something we could pretty much all stand behind.

faith =/= disbelief though...

Sure, you can be an ardent supporter that there is no existence of Marduk, but that doesn't really mean you have "faith" in that concept...

To me, and I hate the word to begin with, faith means that you are willing to put all of your emotional involvement behind an idea nearly 100%... For instance, if I tell you that there is a hundred dollar bill inside a box, and that nothing else is in that box, you would have to have pretty strong faith that what I am telling you is the truth before you would reach in and grab whatever it was inside the box...

To your dismay, it was a Black Mamba, and I just taught you a lesson about having blind faith in anything...
