I'll amend my earlier statement: Agnosticism is the only *logical*
response: Since the non-existence of something cannot be proven, the
Existence of Diety can not logically be ruled impossible.

Hmm. Well, I'd say to a certain extent it does, and then to a certain
extent it doesn't. I've been doing some additional reading, checking on the
difference between "faith" and "belief," and I'm beginning to see your
position a little more clearly. +4

It does not, however, justify the CoV for taking an overt-attack on the
concept of faith when the CoV seems more dedicated to undercover
thought-modification. I contend that the statement about the role of faith
made on the web-site is damaging to the CoV on this basis, which, of
course, has yet to be addressed.
