Dear fellows from the enlightened world,
Last week I was talking about religiosity with a friend of mine. He's an intelligent, educated person, and yet, a typical catholic. After some come-and-go on religions, evidence, morality and so forth, we entered the "faith zone". That's when he came up with "Faith is like love". He said he believes in religious faith because it is like love: you can't prove it's there, but we just FEEL it's there, acting upon us with its misterious force. As Prof. Dawkins would say, that just left me cold. Could you guys help me with an ultimate fatality response to that sort of bridging from private internal feelings to a two thousand year-old book?
