My message was not to convert you. I shared so that you would know that I base my faith not on brain washing or on habit, but on life experiences, on things that I have seen and felt, studied and learned. I worked for my faith and test my faith all the time. On some level I suppose your sarcasm hurts, but the truth is I feel sorry for you. It must be a sad, lonely thing to go through life with nothing to believe in that you can't see with your own eyes and touch with your own hands. If you never believe in anything intangible, you will never fall in love.

I'm not trying to convert you, I pity you. Webster's dictionary defines faith as: "firm belief in something for which there is no proof" And I have seen and felt a lot of things in my life that I can't prove.

It always astonishes me how little tolerance some people can posses for those that do not think as they do.

In addition, please note: I never once reffered to my belief as somthing that is anyone else's. I certainly do not set the standard for the world, nor do I have any answers for you beyond my own experiences.
