"Faith: the belief in something for which there is no material evidence or empirical proof; acceptance of ideals, beliefs, etc.,"

You should at least play cards with an honest deck. Let me give you a real life example from yesterday:

My son had to leave last night for training in North Carolina. Two hours before leaving he called and told me he had lost his wallet 3 days earlier, had looked everywhere to no avail. With all his ID and credit cards and cash gone there is no way he could leave on a Saturday night to drive to North Carolina. We prayed about it. One hour later a woman knocked on his door and said she had found his wallet and finally tracked him down (his address recently changed). "No" material evidence? That's ridiculous. You may argue "insufficient" material evidence if you like, but "none"? You're playing with a doctored deck, my friend.

As above, if you make yourself deaf, you cannot hear.

If you disagree, contribute your comments to the thread that we used to work out these definitions.
