Re: What are the parameters? -- Bafflegab! (Sparrow)
You are correct that belief has more than one definition (and let me substitute faith for it in this context. The definitions I like most are:
"The way to see by Faith is to shut the eyes of Reason."
- Benjamin Franklin
- Poor Richard 1758
Faith may be defined briefly as an illogical belief in the occurrence of the improbable.
- HL Mencken
- Prejudices (1922)
