Short of demonstrable evidence, are there any other good, justifiable reasons for belief?

    I agree that beliefs can be a source of comfort but I've never heard of someone coming to a belief because it's comforting.

    I would say that "faith" is belief in something without evidence. I don't necessarily see belief and faith as the same thing in all circumstances, and I think trust is separate from both as well.
