Heh. I don't mean to be. Like I said--we can drop it. Defining the terms one uses in a discussion is an excellent way to not waste time, only to find that you and the people you were talking with were on totally different pages. That's a problem. While all religion requires faith, how does all faith require religion? One can have faith in something not related to religion, cannot one? Okay, I'm going to say something that sounds annoying here, though I'm not meaning to sound this way, so please, accept that I'm not trying to come off like a dick. You can't say you've not really defined faith and then two sentences later say faith has been twisted out of definition. Okay, this actually is helpful. I take back what I just said above. You do have a definition, you've just not articulated it before, perhaps. When I speak of faith, I'm talking about all faith. So, how do you differentiate between religious and non-religious faith? In other words, besides the OBJECT of the faith being different (a god vs. something other than a god) what actual act is different?
