Faith to something unseens should be much more with cares and thinkings in one ways . Or on other ways it is only instincts or illustions. Some one talk about shrouds of jesus some still relie to nothing scientific. If the one who watch the tv screen and the screen annonated are true to prove jesus. The tv of our whole worlds even the satan would not hide. Are you still looking for jesus or are you working in spots of better worlds. We are all such workers or duelers, Survive with life our ways are dues

Re above: This could be an interesting question. But your post really needs to be proof-read and edited by someone who is more conversant with the English language before I can make enough sense of it to craft an intelligent reply.

Faith means different things to different people. Two common meanings:
- Belief in something that appears likely in the circumstances, although absent specific evidence.
- Belief in something without evidence, or in the face of contrary evidence. I consider this to be logically unsound.
Because of this ambiguity, I avoid using the word "faith" whenever possible.

I admire your wish to converse on a complicated subject in a language not your own, but this particular statement is incomprehensible.

Cheung, I think the following is what you meant to say--am I correct?

"People talk about faith, but sometimes, what they call faith is nothing but an illusion. They speak of the Shroud of Turin but can't cite scientific proof to back it up. Others speak of images of Jesus on TV, but they don't stop to think that if God wanted to use TV to prove himself, he could broadcast himself to the world in a way that even Satan couldn't cover it up.

"Each of us has a job to do in life, and it is based on improving our world, not on arguments about things like shrouds or TV images. Prove your faith by how you improve your life and the lives of others."

Again, I think that's what you meant to say. By the way, you're mistaken about people not citing scientific evidence for the Shroud of Turin. The whole concept of the shroud as proof of Jesus's resurrection is utter nonsense, but that doesn't stop its defenders from claiming that scientific evidence supports it.

Especially when the scientific evidence of its age shows it to be from medieval times; many centuries after Jesus is said to have lived.

Another meaning is something like trust or confidence, like "I have faith in you."

Righteously hilarious. I love the implication that Jesus is trying to hide from the missionaries.

Indeed. Although I would have said "burnt umber." Dead-on accurate about the turtles though.

I dare say.

Re D. Thomas, 6-10 5:05 PM: "something like trust or confidence..." This actually aligns with my first definition. You have trust or confidence in someone whom you have previously observed to be trustworthy.

Faith, to me, is not the same as belief. Faith is confidence based on experience, while belief, for me, is baseless and without any foundation or proof whatsoever. So I can speak of having faith, while, at the same time, affirm that I believe nothing. Faith is a well-grounded conviction, and has been called 'energy in motion', while belief, again, imo, is static and tends to need constant reinforcement to remain "alive".

Re Davison, above: These definitions are reversed from those used by most people, who base "belief" on evidence of some sort, while "faith" is not.

Ariex: But we should give CHEUNG credit for trying, don't you think? After all, my Cantonese spelling is terrible.

Robert, that's why I prefaced my remarks with "to me".
