You have to laugh when a conman comes asking if you can justify your faith. As a matter of fact, just laugh when a conman comes asking any question.

where is there faith in science?
science needs evidence
faith is the lack of evidence

Faith is belief in the unseen and unproven, Science is based on facts. That simple. wink

stupid question. Personal credence is on a level beyond "justification". The answer is irrelevant. You ask 1000 people you will get 1000 answers. Consider it useless data.

untrue, everybody tries to justify what they believe. Especially in the face of what can be moral superiority

You ask 1000 people you will get 1000 answers.

Good, lets hear them and weigh them

Faith allows humans to do this. cool
Not all humans are wired to believe in facts and science as you can surely tell from the posts on this thread. Nothing is absolute. wink

A man does not believe or have faith in God because he has to justify it.

That is the point I am making... ASKING for a justification is disingenuous.

You can't apply logic to faith.

On why the question is flawed:
Can you justify your faith?
Can produce a binary response or shortlisted response.

How do you define your faith?
Produces an answer for evaluation.
