The problem with a typical definition of faith as something we think is true but can’t prove is the implicit assumption that there exists anything that could be proven true in a more objective way than a statement of faith. Consistency and coherence within a given set of expectations and rules is all anyone can hope for, whether it’s a statement of faith, a claim of science, an historical recollection, or anything else. Faith is the assumption upon which knowledge or doubt is possible. Faith is the desert in which we name the stakes we think we’ve found.
