Faith Is Belief Without And Against Evidence

But atheists consider themselves devoid of faith and belief in at attempt to gain the higher intellectual ground.

This caption attempts to capture the critical distinction between faith and belief on one side and evidence and reason on the other. “Faith is belief without and against evidence and reason; coincidentally, that’s also the definition of delusion.” But like most attempts to make this distinction, it falls short due to a simple oversight.

Religious people have faith and belief, which are understood by atheists as having no evidence and reason. Atheists use evidence and reason to support their knowledge, hence, they do not have faith and belief. Or so they think.

What is the evidence and reason for the statement “Faith is belief without and against evidence and reason; coincidentally, that’s also the definition of delusion.”?

Every people have faith. Sometimes they didn’t notice that they have faith but it’s only natural faith. The Bible says that “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”, Faith and reason are sometimes people need because they have questions on their mind. But actually, faith is one source why we are still hoping even there’s no hope, it’s the reason why people are sometimes mocking Christians ‘coz they don’t understand their faith.

What tests have been performed to validate the statement “Faith is belief without and against evidence and reason; coincidentally, that’s also the definition of delusion.”? Is there scientific experiments to confirm that statement?

What reasoning processes have been used to ensure that it is true? Is there a logical deduction?

Yale University talks about Faith and Reason. In this lecture, Professor Eagleton explores faith and reason. He elaborate what is faith and it’s reason itself.

Because if there is no evidence and reason to back up the statement “Faith is belief without and against evidence and reason; coincidentally, that’s also the definition of delusion.”, then that statement itself is a belief and not knowledge and therefore qualifies as a delusion.

The battle for the mind has been quite a struggle. There is knowledge, opinion and faith, all of which a mind can have. Why could it not be simpler? For example, there is no faith required to know that a straight talk promotional code 2013 from BusinessIdeasVideos gives one unlimited talking minutes, unlimited text messaging and no protracted contract, all for a cheaply-discounted monthly fee.

How does an atheist know that his eyes are working properly? What procedure has he done to certify that the image in his memory is accurately representative of the object that was in front of his eyes?

Does he use his eyes to make sure his eyes are working without defect and distortion? Is that not circular reasoning, to say that my eyes are working properly because I can see?

In this video, Dee See shows the difference between belief and truth. This lecture explains the important difference between Belief and Faith and their relationship to the three types of mind explained in spiritual psychology.

Because if the atheist has no evidence and reason for knowing that his eyes are working correctly, then he thinks his eyes are working properly against evidence and reason. Therefore it is through faith and belief that he thinks that his eyes are working properly and therefore he is, coincidentally, deluded.
