Let’s not just write faith off so glibly. After all, it’s not faith’s fault that we use it as a synonym for expectation, dogma, or rightness. Even the greatest cynics and conspiracy theorists—those who resist the very notion of faith—have faith in their ideas. As long as you are breathing and your heart is pumping in your chest, you will never escape the need “to faith,” and why would you want to? The human predicament literally pushes at you day after day, calling to your courage and intelligence, imploring you to pay attention to life as it is, urging you to let go into humbleness. How long can you ignore it?
