If faith was blind belief, why would it be of such importance?

Faith to do the impossible regardless the odd.

For example climbing the mountain. Would you still want to climb the mountain if you don't believe you could do it? Unless you want to suicide, I don't think any rational people would want to.

It is the same when you are lost and completely alone in the vast ocean with no hope of being found by any ships. After few days you begin to suffer severe dehydration and hallucination.

It is tempting to drink salt water, or jumping into water and get yourself drown. You need to have faith to hold yourself no matter how impossible it seem.

Faith allow people to hope. And hope motivate people to keep surviving regardless the odds.

If you believe you can do it, you will do it. That's faith.


At the risk of perpetuating a circular discussion:
There are people, and animals, that do these things without faith. Every day, very common.
Can you see that your explication leaves no room for them?

Fine. You decline to defend your claims, therefore: your claims remain in the realm of opinion/belief/temporary ideas/observations/thoughts/concepts, and not any kind of truth.

Faith is only based on what other people teach you and that is why it is faith, because other people taught you it. If you discovered the truth on your own it wouldnt be faith anymore, it would be knowledge.

I know, I've been wondering why we went to school in the first place.
