Interestingly this has to do with a recent comment to one of my articles, (I am a political columnist/ Libertarian/ Atheist bent) that said something along the lines of...

What does it matter who is right, all that matters is what we have faith in.

Obviously, there is no real response from myself. However, I got to thinking, "What does it matter what another's faith is as long as they do not try to take my right to think away?"

So what are your thoughts and why...

One should have faith in the goal of being right and the facts help you get there.
I do not care what anyone's faith is as long as it doesn't effect me, wake me up on Saturday at nine to talk, or put up bigotry signs. If we all thought secularly and believed in something to ourselves, there would never be a problem.
It doesn't matter what one believes if one lives in La-La Land, but in the real world I want a doctor--not a faith healer; I want a science book--not a Ouija board; I want to be around people who think for themselves--not those who have to always have someone else tell them what to think.
Being right by using the facts of course! As for faith .... who needs it?
I don't care if I'm wrong...I'll go were the facts are.
Love it, thank you all for the well reasoned responses!
