    You do realize that FAITH is defined as belief in something that cannot be seen, heard, or proven; right?
    But for which you have a solid basis or evidence or good reason to believe.

    Not necessarily. You're adding your own caveats to the definition. That may work for YOU, but that is not the way that most people view Faith.

    It is the ACTUAL definition .... and the way most people view it ... whenever people have a faith they always point to some induction, or reasoning or evidence behind their faith.

    Otherwise any assertion is faith, like I think babies are made out of jello.

    The idea of proof or reason behind it is nowhere in the standard definition of Faith. There may be a reason they believe that way, but it is not necessarily based on any form of proof or knowledge.

    Well your OPINION about how common you think they are is meaningless and yes Im a NORMAL person who respects logic, facts and reason because thats how honest intelligent realistic people operate

    if they didnt we would still be in the dark ages and burning people at the stake
    you probably long for those times LOL

    but like I said the most important thing is that you fully admit its illogical, irrational, unrealistic and not supported by anything intelligent or factual.

    Look at it this way.... 15 years ago the number of homeschooling families in the United States was relatively low. The idea was considered an aberation by the majority of educators. Now it's a growing institution that must be taken seriously by educators and education overseers throughout the nation. Many of those people are the same type of people that I'm talking about. The Traditionalist society exists in the same sort of shadows that the homeschooling society does. In fact they overlap to a large degree.

    I do believe those were better times, philosophically, than what we have today.

    No I don't. I simply comprehend that there is no arguement that I'm going to put forth that you're going to listen to, so I'm not going to invest my time and energy in beating my head against a wall.

    Of course I would vote for a women who shared my views. I am happy to see any politican share my view. They all seem to be too far right or too far left for me. The ones who are centrists tend to be corrupt or focused on the wrong issues.

    Okay, so not only are you willing to vote for a woman, but you're willing to vote for either a man or a woman who has no guiding Principles, Values, or Morals to speak of; since that is how Centrists are truly defined.

    They are guided by Centrist principles, values and morals. Simply because someone's principles, values and morals are not your own does not mean they are not real. And for that matter one can hold certain personal principles, values and morals that are not the same with their political ones if some of their higher held ones override the lower ones. For example: My highest principle is that of Freedom. To be able to do as you will as long as no true harm comes to others, unless they consent to it. So why my personal principle may be that one should not work on the Sabbath, I also recognize that various religions and even denominations within a given religion have various Sabbaths. Why should there be a law against working on Sunday when the Jewish Sabbath goes from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday? For that matter why should the Atheist be forced to not work on that day when it's not a part of his beliefs. No harm comes to a Christian if someone else works on a day they are not allowed to by their principles and beliefs. So my personal principle of freedom overrides my personal moral/belief/whatever of the Sabbath in regards to other people.
