> I would characterize faith as a belief that exists in the absence of proof.

Who decides what constitutes proof?

Did you believe in the existence of the Higgs Boson (and field) before it was first observed in the CERN synchro-cyclotron last year? Some very scientific minds did. Were the calculations of Higgs in 1964 a mathematical proof or an act of faith?

What conditions must exist in order for you to believe in God? Have you already struck a bargain?

God doesn't exist. If He did exist, he wouldn't be God. He would be us.

My belief in God is rather simple. I doubt it rises to the level of faith. However, it is absolute.
