Faith is a belief in the highly improbable despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

No. An idea is either true or false. There is no probability involved.


Believing an idea means having no criticisms of that idea. At least this is how people ***should*** believe in their ideas. Why would someone believe in an idea if he has criticisms of that idea? And why wouldn’t someone believe in an idea if he doesn’t have any criticisms of it? Faith!!!


Faith works like this: To believe an idea while having criticisms of that idea. And to not believe an idea even if one doesn’t have criticisms of that idea.


You mentioned evidence. Evidence is a type of criticism. Its criticism that uses physical data.

And according to Karl Popper, and David Deutsch, and Elliot Temple, and many others.


Do you have a criticism of my ideas? A criticism is an explanation of a flaw in an idea. What flaw do you see? Whats your explanation that it is a flaw?

Trying to communicate with you is not a productive endeavor.

That is true only if *you* are the one trying to communicate with me.


Everyone else hasn’t had that trouble. Maybe you should try to emulate them.


So your post is a criticism against you, not me.
