Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
I have always interpreted faith as synonymous with belief and so the above text is appropriate for this post. Atheists always wonder why a theist cannot see how absurd and childish their beliefs really are, and I think that the above statement makes it abundantly clear as to why. It says if you believe all things are possible and all Christians apparently have to eschew logic and reason in favor of faith.
I personally have called faith; the ultimate equalizer when it comes to arguing for the existence of god. The reason for this is that when you are debating with a Christian about their beliefs, and they get cornered and find their backs against the wall they can always appeal to faith. They make such silly statements such as how finite our minds are to be able to comprehend the infinite mind of god etc.
Faith requires no evidence, through the eyes of faith you can command a mountain to move from one place to another in Jesus name and it must obey. Although, to date I have never met a man Christian or otherwise who can demonstrate the truth of such a statement. When asked for proof they say that you should not tempt the lord etc. etc. The same old tired trash that they spew all the time. If you argue with them long enough you realize how much they sound like drones, they all tend to repeat the same reprocessed nonsense they have been taught.
Through the eyes of faith the absurd makes sense, and the illogical becomes logical. For faith there are no worldly boundaries to it's powers. Faith goes beyond the natural and reaches out into the supernatural world without missing a beat. Faith requires no evidence just the gullibility of its subscriber, and the suspension of their own free ability to think for themselves.
