Default Re: The Difference Between Faith and Knowledge

People talk about how they don't NEED tangible proof, and that they don't NEED to know for sure that God exists, they just do.

Then they usually turn it around on me and say, "You need proof, see, I don't need proof. I just know."

According to those people, that's what faith is, believing in something that you cannot see, etc.

Well my response to this is simple. I don't understand why people need proof for EVERYTHING ELSE, except religion. The only reason you believe, say, the Bible, is because you've been raised on that. I say that it's BAD to not need proof, because if you don't need proof for something, how do you know that it's not true? It's simple common sense, and common sense gets thrown away when it comes to religion.
