If you believe in some things purely by faith how do you decide
which yahoos to have faith in and which ones not to? (remember, your
faith will be a yahoo to some faiths you reject.)

Its not my definition of faith. This discussion would be easier
if you spelled out a statement that you have faith in.
BTW, I have read Hawkin's theory and I dont believe it, in fact
it is full of holes anyone who has read it will know what I mean.
