I was mostly trying to make the distinction between blind faith (which is just faith in today's world; trusting in something without really testing it) and visionary faith (which is testing it for the sake of truth and possibility). Dogmatic faith and personal faith, respectively.

I understand what having trust in something means, but would you trust something without having any reason to trust it? Trust without reason is faith, and to me, trust must first be earned.
