“Faith belongs to the human spirit. Faith is faith. Humanity is divided by religion, religion is the divider of humanity. If every human could be removed of their blindfolds and see that faith is in itself faith and that this is something which belongs to each and every human being, then at that time the dividers of religion will suddenly mean nothing and we will all see that we are united by faith in and of itself. There is only one faith and it is called faith. And no man needs to prove to another man that what he believes in exists, because even if it does not exist, his faith is his belief that it is there, that something is there, and that in itself is faith. So I do not need to prove to any man that what I believe in exists or not, there is no such contest between man, my faith breathes in the body of my belief; the fact that I believe is the breath of my faith.”

Well...I don't think so...whatever "faithless" might be.

 

I hate it when people throw words around...as if they were bricks or trophies of some type.  Anyone who has an inkling of how language works...understands that it's highly improbably that concepts and symbols...are interpreted in the same manner...by any two persons, let alone a group.

 

For those who think that "faith" is something that can be comprehended and rhetoricized about...I only ask that you remind yourself of who you were...and who you are...when you are expounding about "faith" or the lack thereof.  Most importantly...remember that your concept of anything...is highly unlikely to be the basis of anything other than confusion and misunderstanding...over "symbols" and "concepts"...that have no inherent meaning that can commonly be agreed upon...by the human race.

Dear Alexstraza: I have thought quite a bit about your response. 

 

And you share: I'm an atheist, what does that make me?

 

This is how I feel: Just who you are.

 

I see Alexstrasza as a dedicated Bleeping Computer Malware Study Hall Senior.

 

A commitment that is extremely demanding and requires personal dedication. Once graduated, you’ll join the elite group, who offer endless volunteer hours making a difference in other’s lives; much the same as the pictures shared by Condobloke!

 

I encourage you to embrace who you are. Keep going without worry of judgment.

 

All the best to you!

 

Regards,

Whenever we work toward a worthy goal, we exercise faith. We show our hope for something that we cannot yet see.

One of my favorite books is the Clestine Prophecy, it's fun and Spiritual.  I had some real unique experiences when reading it, along the line of the book.  And started connecting with people that had also read it, quite incredible.  It teaches what I think Spirituality is all about, very cool - I highly suggest reading it.  It might even be at your Public Library.

I am an Atheist as well, I have been one for almost 50 years. That makes me a person of much faith.

@Rocky Bennett
Not sure if you are being sarcastic or not but I agree with that statement taken at face value. Faith does not have to be religious per se. If you believe that the universe behaves according to certain natural laws and that is it, then that is your faith. Even if you believe that the universe is chaos, completely unpredictable, you still believe that nothing predictable can happen (whether that is a logical fallacy I don't want to delve into.) but that is what you believe.

I'm strongly religious, but that doesn't mean I feel like everyone should be.

No, I am not being sarcastic at all. Everybody should live a life that follows their beliefs with the utmost faith their beliefs are absolutely correct. I have absolute faith in my beliefs. I live my life in such a way that expresses my beliefs, and I would hope that every human being has enough dignity and faith to do the same, no matter what their beliefs are.

Actually, I have to respectfully disagree with this, at least at face value and precisely as written.

 

There should always be at least some "room for doubt" when it comes to beliefs that are not based in verifiable fact, and sometimes even then because verifiable isn't always 100%, but verified to the best of our ability at a given point in time. One must always be ready to modify one's beliefs and actions as new information becomes available.

That doesn't mean being wishy-washy nor in a constant state of doubt and questioning, either. But absolute belief that one's beliefs are absolutely correct is a textbook definition of zealotry and doesn't allow for change in light of new information, because you don't let new information in when you're absolutely certain you are right.
