For people who say they don’t have faith in anything or endeavors to not have faith in anything?

You have to take it on faith you have evidence for any claim. Right?

You have to take it on faith you don’t have evidence for any claim.

You may say you use logic to justify these claims.

How do you justify logic? Evidence?

So you justify evidence with logic and logic with evidence. Isn’t this circular?


I’m defining faith as the excuse people give for believing in something when they don’t have a better reason.

    Whom do I contact about Jews killing 70 million in Soviet Union by gulags, famine, or shooting squads? How can Russian Orthodox get some justice?

    Russian Orthodox Metropolitan Ioann Snychev was poisoned/murdered by Jew Putin (aka Shalomov) because he refused to work for Jews. KGB poisoned Putin; Putin died in 2007; now doubles (who wear latex masks) pretend to be Putin. Medvedev is David Aaronovich Mendel. Jews murdered Tsar Nicolas 2nd's family; Jews bled them for six hours according to ritual.

    Tsar Nicolas' family was sacrificed byJews (theybled6hours); their remains were burnt; their blood drank; ashes from remains were sprinkled onto 50 hard-boiled eggs (dish called scido Amafreikis) [50 egg shells were found outside the place of ritual murder]. Also, decapitated Tsar's head (which was grey ... hair turned grey when he saw his kids being knifed).. Ritualistic murder.. (blood libel is same thing as anti-Semitism ... a lie by Jews to flee justice). Jews came up that Tsar's family was shot. Tsar appeared to warn that whosoever worships false remains will become possessed by demons (this just happened like a decade ago .. maybe less)… Jews collect heads of leaders because they believe in reincarnation.

    How about Jews coming up with a mocking holiday April 1st because resurrection of Jesus happened on that day? Jews came up with mocking holidays 23 February (Day of Soviet Army) which was capitulation by cowards in Tsar’s army… or March 8 (international Woman’s day) which celebrates lesbian/prostitute Klara Tsetkin and Rosa Luxembourg.

    Three biggest saints in heaven (in this order): Theotokos Virgin Mary, John the Baptist, and Tsar Nicolas 2nd

    Four biggest sinners in hell (in this order from the bottom of hell moving up to our level): Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin

    You could joke that Marx is a bigger sinner than Engels because Marx fooked Engels but how is Lenin bigger sin than Stalin when Lenin was fooked by Zinoviev (even by Bronstein once)?

    Lenin's brain was the size of walnut. He had syphilis. Was alcoholic. Born from incest degenerate family. Was in insane asylum. Wife Kruspkaya was probably lesbian 'cause what normal woman would stay with him?

    According to RussianOrthodoxresearcher Grigoriy Klimov, three stages of degeneracy are

    1)sodomy (69, anal, oral, masturbation, pedophilia, incest, necrophilia, beastiality, orgies, hand job, bj, even all non-missionary positions between husband and wife, etc.)

    2)insane asylum

    3)physical deformities in kids (eyes looking at different angles, wolf jaw, rabbit lip, horse foot, different length limbs, etc.)

    all these accompanied by drug/alcohol abuse

    Jews have like six times more degenerates than other nations because they don't have monkhood. Jewish degenerates become politicians (or similar high rank in society). In Germany during Hitler time, it was eight times. Hitler, Stalin (aka Jugashvilli which means son of Jew), Roosevelt, Churchill were all Jewish degenerates. Hitler had many Jewish coworkers as homosexual partners. Stalin was expelled from seminary for sodomy.

    A few centuries ago, angel appeared to Orthodox Christian community and said not to buy from Jews at bazaar because it's sprinkled with blood (something like that)

     Elimination of comments on Yahoo Answers means that Project Pogo is completed. Now, Project Zyphr will initiate in winter. They will turn off electricity for a few days to gather dissidents into underground concentration camps. The remaining people will be chipped. Only marked people will receive food in closed stores. So, when people sign up for food, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable mark of the beast. Hide within 10-15 people group (saints Gabriel Urgebadze and Serafim of Sarov); no documents; no electronics.

    Source(s): If the last descendant rejects mark of the beast, then his/her direct ancestors go to permanent heaven. To reject mark of the beast, one needs to hide within a 10-15 people group without electronics/documents. Documents are from Satan; burn them. Electronics can be used to track you and to show the antichrist (even on old broken unplugged TV set from 1970's); forgive me.

    No. Evidence doesn't require faith, that's why it's _evidence_.

    You don't seem to understand what these words mean.

    I don't say that I don't have faith in anything, so maybe this question isn't for me, but....

    My definition of faith is roughly synonymous to my definition of confidence. People can have a lot of confidence in things that are not supported by facts; they can even have confidence in things that are contradicted by the facts. 

    Personally, I don't have much faith in anything unless it's supported by my interpretation of the evidence. The whole universe is evidence, but people often differ in the way that they interpret that evidence.

    Your statement, "You have to take it on faith you have evidence for any claim." doesn't make any sense to me. One either does have evidence, or one doesn't. How can one have faith that they have evidence when they don't have evidence? And how can one lack faith that they have evidence when they do have evidence?

    Logic isn't a claim; it is a way of thinking that is used to make claims. The only thing that anyone needs to justify logic is observation. Logical deductions turn out to be correct more often than irrational ones.

    It seems to me that you are an adherent of the old maxim: if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.

    I have faith.


    I have faith that everyone is going to die sooner or later, including you. Especially you, and hopefully that's sooner than later on the grounds that the world needs less dickish people who aren't so hung up on logic. Most people are illogical creatures, so get over it.

    There's are different definitions of the word *faith*. One is reminding yourself of the evidence you have. What I mean is, in a stressful situation you might overlook the fact that something has been shown to work repeatedly in the past. In that sense, faith is reason prevailing over emotion if you remember what you've got.

    I am religious and very logical.

    Based on your line of questioning it would seem you are using a straw-man logical fallacy in an attempt to show a flaw in logic.

    It would be a circular argument to conclude that logic is the reason that logic is correct.  That's not why I use logic.

    I trust in logic because the its fundamental principles are simple.  If a logical argument is valid, and the assumptions are obvious, it give more credibility to the conclusion.

    Faith is having trust in something, and there is nothing wrong with trusting in things that are trustworthy.
