There is a BIG difference betwee Faith as in a religious word and Faith as what Jesus spoke about. People get that messed up becasue of their indoctrination.
I agree there is some difference. However since the question was asked under a religious category I was talking about the faith one has that God will come through for them in times of trouble or "make a way out of no way" or whatever they ask for
John do you believe most (highly educated people) believe the Garden of Eden story or some form of Evolution? Samson killing 1000 men with a donkey jawbone? Adam lived to be 930 years old, Foreign languages exist because of the Tower of Babel?
With all due respect; your argument may perhaps be flawed in the equating of religion entirely with the bible. Many religious do not propose that their religion is entirely based on the bible (that is a narrow view).
Excellent point John! Generally speaking most discussions on HP concerning religion tend to be based around Christianity. That is also the one I'm most familiar with! :)
Are you assuming all Christian faiths' authority is just based on the bible? If you are you may indeed be suffering from a critical thinking flaw referred to over-simplification...
The largest single Christian church is the Catholic Church. It would be handy if some would acquaint themselves with its comments regarding science before lumping all religious into one pile.
Is this not in itself a classic over-simplification?
