Most impressed by Dr Whaley's comments.

First hitting on the faith which to me is related to soul, two pretty hard things to comprehend and easily accept.

He reminds me of Thomas Huxley's famous word: ""skepticism is the highest of duties; blind faith the one unpardonable sin"". And in as much as I can name authors who only say good things about faith, I will remind the reader of this interesting word of Dan Brown, in the Da Vinci Code : "Faith in the world is based on fabrications.
