Atheist Frontier - Questioning what's Real
   






Glossary - Faith

Faith is the suspension of critical thinking, such as believing a claim or explanation without truly questioning if it's real or attempting to prove it with Logical, Objective, Verifiable Evidence.

The main problem with faith is that it provides opportunities for those who use well-presented incredible claims or fallacies to fooling others who are faithful.  For example, presenting a bandwagon fallacy (e.g., "the product is very popular, so you should be it too") is sometimes used to enhance the persuasiveness of an argument to convince buyers to purchase wares or services.
