    I wish I was more sure.

    I'm sorry to hear that this guy died, he doesnt seem like anyone who would have done anyone any harm and I'm sure his family and friends will mourn him.

    Why do you believe that it can't be consciously decided?

    It may be consciously or unconsciously decided, but logic and reason cannot be utilized to effectively determine whether faith has merit, at least in regards to faith of a religious sort.

    Almost all of us, except in a small part of the West, learn our faith at our mother's knee, long before we are able to make a conscious choice.

    So our faith is as unconscious as our love of our mother.

    To presume that "mood" or "feeling" = faith seems problematic to me. It's like presuming that one would feel stomach-achey love sickness throughout their marriage.

    Faith, IMO, is an action arising from a conscious decision.

    Much like love, you know? Sustained love is an action based from a conscious decision.
