Welcome to RDnet.

There are a number of kinds of faith. Faith that tomorrow printed money or money in an account will still be exchangeable for goods and services is quite different to religious faith. Faith in money is based on past experience and an understanding of how the economy works. We can investigate and reasonably estimate the circumstances under which the faith is justified and under which it is not.

Religious faith is not like this.
