I often tell people that faith is not even a rung on the ladder of truth.
However, there is room for faith as long as it is backed up by facts.
I do a lot of performances with a christian friend of mine named Kevin. He is one great drummer and I have faith that when we perform he is going to be outstanding.
Faith, though, will not guarantee that he will, just as it will not guarantee that the Earth will rotate causing the sunrise and sunset.
