What are reasons that we human beings seek faith? According to studies I have yet to cite sources of, being religious is humanly normal and being irreligious is humanly novel. I believe humans have sought faith for the following reasons: -To seek strength and guidance because they feel weak and misguided -To explain the unexplained such as how humans and trees were created and how the solar system, galaxies and space were created -It could be what their conscience tells them -They believe there is a place we go after we die But, let us ask this question, "What is faith?" http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/faith?s=t Generally, it is defined as a belief held without evidence. Yet, why do humans have faith and why do they believe in something that has not been proven yet?
