Bryan: What you’re describing is a hypothesis. There’s a huge difference. Faith is taking something as fact, regardless of lack of evidence. A hypothesis, on the other hand, is taken as a theory, and must be proven to be fact. The act of searching for evidence and proof means that you need that evidence in order to believe the hypothesis, therefore you don’t have faith in the idea.
