Yes, Yes, Yes, and No and No.

What are your answers?

I believe faith requires the ability for it. For example; I've always believed in the plausibility of the supernatural. This is the foundation for the ability of faith. Science may refer to this crudely as "natural pending mechanism", but the mechanisms for origins are sketchy IMO.

Among those faiths discussing the supernatural (deity), Christianity has struck me as the most organic at its foundation, most affirmed in its literary authenticity. From this, you can conclude answers 1, 2, and 3 without encountering too much push-back. It is "yes" answers to 4 and 5 that lead to an "anything-goes" faith and essentially negates any weight behind your "yes" answers to 1, 2, and 3. Unfortunately, this constitutes the majority of "believers" today.

There now, ya got me! Happy now rogermug?

my answers: yes, yes, yes, no, no

everything you said, I completely agree with... not sure I could have said it better myself.
