faith (click) is what we believe about reality without objectivity or logic.

This is a false definition of CHRISTIAN faith, whatever other kind of faith you may have in mind. Christian faith is faith in the God of the Bible and in His revelation. He's the Creator of everything including science and reason. Whatever truly derives from Him is true, objective and logical.

Not in the history of Christendom are they dismissed as articles of faith as you and he slightingly mean the term. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen." I think it was Athanasius who said "I know because I believe" or words to that effect, and when I first read that I knew exactly what he meant. In other words faith in the true God is a door to true knowledge, not the groundless thing unbelievers make of it. So you're wrong. Sorry.

ABE: Google seems to suggest it was Anselm, not Athanasius.

Re: Not anymore
That's hilarious.

Pressie must have had a bit too much "Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum."
