Faith is Unseen

There is a lot that is taken by faith that we consider scientific today.  These things are taken for granted and aren't up for discussion for most people.  Their argument is, "Everybody knows..."  For instance: everybody knows the the earth revolves around the sun.  However, 1000 years ago, everybody knew the sun revolved around the earth. 

This isn't an argument that modern science is wrong and that we shouldn't trust it.  Instead, it is an acknowledgement that we place our faith in people any time we can't observe something ourselves.  From our perspective, the sun revolves around the earth, moving from east to west.  Unless we do all of the measurements and calculations, we must have faith that those who did, did so correctly.

We must have faith that God created the universe.  We didn't observe it but we obviously know that it came to be somehow.  We rely on the authors of the Bible to tell us the story of what happened just as we rely on scientists to tell us how things operate today. 

Faith can collide with the faith of another.  Christians believe that God created the universe while many scientists believe that it was formed through a Big Bang with the mixing of the right chemicals at the right time.  Since we can't observe the formation of the universe, we must take it on faith and choose what we believe.
