Walk by faith and seeing are two things that are not to be separated All people have a way of thought is this: "Look first, then faith" Contrary to live by Faith is believe first then we shall see. Do we live today / lately because believe it or by sight? Shall we live by faith in the current time?

What we have to believe in god that one in three or three in one, while we ourselves do not believe in the authenticity of our own holy book?

"Science adjusts its views based on what's observed. Faith is the denial of observation so that belief can be preserved." -Tim Minchin I don't ignore evidence because of fear. I embrace knowledge by seeking out truth.

"Embrace knowledge by seeking out the truth" a wise principle, in dealing with this case.

I do not live by faith. I search to discover the truth. Faith or beliefs are not always true. They merely point the direction by which one should investigate. All knowledge is meant to be discovered. To blindly rely on beliefs or faith is to not seek truth but to settle for what feels good. Truth doesn't always feel good but to depend on anything else is to depend on fairy tales. That I could never do.

Sometimes I feel faith should be forced to eat it raw though without analysis. I do not know with my situation is like this, there is something wrong with my mind.

The concept of the primitive humans, who can not digesting what is happening need something so that the problems can be solved. along with the development of the human mind itself finally on the Egyptian and ancient Greek, answered with several of God (remember God is a God English translation,the translation from Latin) the concept of God more than this one, along with the development of human thought patterns and the development of the technology itself eventually produce Unitarian concept, clear everything with the letter, verse and devices. This concept of generating the questions you ask.
