Let's get one thing out of the way... Faith is tested and trusted.
Faith is believing in the truth until the truth reveals itself.
Faith is me traveling with peace airline without first testing the accuracy of the pilot and the engine because I know they have always delivered and customer service is satisfactory.
Faith is me eating my mother's meal after receiving serious scolding from her without any any fear of food poisoning.
Faith is me believing all the stories of cyanophyta, algae, thallophyta, bryophtha taught by the Professor without first carrying out my own laboratory experiment to prove if he is right or wrong.
Faith is me believing that Williams Shakespeare wrote Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet without actually witnessing it.
REMEMBER FAITH IS BELIEVE IN THE TRUTH UNTIL THE TRUTH REVEALS ITSELF. IF IT DOESN'T THEN IT IS NOT THE TRUTH OR IT IS NOT FAITH.
Those in nursery school and Montessori needs faith to know that 1+1=2 until they discover it for themselves by bringing together many bottle crowns and start doing the mathematics at home. Or after series of failures.
But this is just one side of the story.
On the other side, how can we verify that 1+1=2? Is it because we were taught in school or because it is generally accepted by all?
By the way who was the first person to postulate that 1+1=2?
Can any atheist here help me out?
Orville and Wilbur Wright believe their own special metal can fly even when it seems impossible for metals to fly. But When all necessary skills and tools were put into work their metal actually flew.
So you see faith is believing in the qualities of that metal until the metal prove itself.
Same principle for the ship.
By faith I believe water plus clay makes mud because I believe my chemistry teacher in high school even if I haven't verified it myself.
Faith without work or logic is dead.
That's why God has not sealed our brains and freewill because He wants us to investigate Him not only by faith but also by Logic. And up till now God is correct and with the way things are He will not be found guilty of all His claims and actions.
if you care about the truth, faith is not enough. In other words faith without works is dead.
