Hi, Ted
We've been trying to steer clear of legitimacy but might have fallen for it if you were not so honest. Thanks!

"Therefore, adherence to any belief requires a "leap of faith."

A deep and developed mind can still have something basic to learn.
All terms in a legal document need to be defined,
so why not all terms in a major philosophical position statement?

"Adherence"..."belief"... "requires"..."leap"..."faith"... and "leap of faith" are fairly vague to me in this context. I sorta know what you mean but I would like to know if you mean anything deeper than those cliches have conveyed so far. I suspect you do mean something deeper. I hope so.
Cordially,
Mike
