Hey everyone, I've come back from my contemplative sabbatical, locked and loaded. Glad to see everyone's still here; I've missed the debates we get into. Speaking of... :wink:
Frank: A) Good to see you again, I've missed reading your posts. B) I have a slightly different distinction I'd like to share with you: Instead of seeing beliefs as guesses, and faith as the insistence, I see belief as the insistence, and faith as the codification of those insistences into a religion. The guesses you were talking about are, to me, synonymous with the hypotheses you and I have bandied about on many occasions, such as my "three" theory. In the past, I shared your hierarchy, but after a discussion that I believe was actually with you
, I modified my definitions
Again, it's good to see you again, and I hope to hear from you soon.
