if it goes beyond human reason, then you can't understand it. that's the whole point. you choose to believe in something you cannot possibly understand.
your faith makes you comfortable and all warm and gooey inside -- i get it.
when i was young, i put my faith into god the way a good christian is supposed to. i was smart enough to realize it was getting me nowhere. you read some words in a book and then just let your brain take an extended vacation. things are rarely that easy. a better solution is to continue being a good person but also realize that god is an arbitrary concept. take your brain out of the jar and use it.
what do you have against the skeptic, anyway? do you think skeptics are inherently immoral people or something? you seem to be chiding the skeptic because some skeptics may have not 'tried' faith in god. well, i bet that you haven't tried putting all your faith into the bluish-green elves that live in your nose and create your smell sensations by waving around their magic wands made out of unicorn bone. what does that make you?
