There are only two basic emotions (love & fear), they are intrinsically primal, and have no basis in faith. Please explain the mechanism of fear in some detail and how and/or why faith is a requisite for the manifestation of fear. I'm always anxious to learn.
LOL... what a joke
so Joy, pain, guilt, embarrassment, etc... are not emotions? I laugh at you.
In order to be fearful of something you have to have faith in that fear. that's simple chemistry. when a person is in fear, their blood pressure rises, they might sweat, they get nervous, etc...but if you suppress your faith in said fear, you can become fear-less.
example 1 - Like a Lion for instance, if you didn't have faith in your fear of Lions, you would walk out into the Serengetti amongst a pride and get your ass ripped to shreds because your ignorance allowed you to get ate up for no reason.
example 2 - If you didn't have a healthy faith in the fear of falling from a 30 story building, you would go on your lunch break and try to jump just to see if you land properly. again, your ignorance allowed you not to recognize the law of gravity.
Faith, to me, is having confidence in knowing without seeing first.
most Atheist, prefer to see everything to show proof.
having said that, do you really think America was attacked by Muslims during 9-11? if so, you are a fool.
