I'll explain what I mean by faith. Faith is what keeps every living creature wanting to live unless it is in utter despair. Faith is nothing like what you wrote.We may live by blind faith which is psychological slavery but we do have the potential to live with the experience of conscious faith which is strength, So I don’t know what you mean by faith.
I agree why would it. I am not sure about a priori knowledge. I do tend to believe in it, at least inasmuch as we seek meaning and pattern as if these were there possibly to be found.Be reasonable. Why would an ineffable Source responsible for the creation of the universe worry about telling you how to live. It is part of universal knowledge and a priori knowledge for us. We just have to remember it and take advantage of what helps us to remember..
Conscience and consciousness are much the same thing. Individuals' Consciousnesses/consciences are sometimes stifled by indoctrination by those who want to keep power to themselves.There are far too many people concerned with indoctrinated morality and not enough who have become open to the experience of “conscience.” In fact how many even know the difference?
Belinda, if what you say is true and the fate of Man is dust to dust it makes the Crucifixion and the choice it offers the ultimate expression of stupidity.
It's the opposite of stupidity. The Crucifixion symbolises freedom because symbolically it means defiance of stupidity.
