faith talk (it bears repeating)

I posted this as a comment in someone else's journal and thought it was worth repeating to those who don't know that person:

I am mostly jaded. I have momentary flashes of hope, faith in humanity, but I am usually dissapointed. The times when I do believe in something, it is a singular, individual kind of faith, not faith in large things or abstract ideas. I occasionally have faith in the power of a single person's struggle to change. I have faith in the power of stupid people in large groups. I believe that other people believe. I believe that religion is a place to hide, just another escape mascarading as real. It's a lot like NERO, but violently enforced through fear and much better funded. Too often I believe what people say because I am in love with truth and forget that others are not. Occasionally, people I believe in continue to be pillars of what i believe them to be, and these people I hold dear to me and try to keep as close to me as possible, so I do not lose all faith in humanity. I believe that I will do what is necessary, even if I don't know what that is. I believe everyone has a soft spot in thier heart for something. And I believe in faries. I don't know if this answers your question or not. I think what I mean to say is that if you believe, then believe, and if you don't, then don't. If the jury is out, at least you're thinking about it


I don't think I could have said it better myself.
