This piece echoes a blog post I once wrote (http://perfexcellence.wordpress.com/2008/04/12/do-u-believe-in-god-or-do-u-believe-in-what-man-says-about-god/)
Faith, God is one of those things of which it can be said ... "to s/he who understands, no explanation is necessary, to s/he who does not understand, no explanation is possible"
I have read lots of books/articles tearing down God/Faith ... I have immersed myself in man's inhumanity to man and rather than weaken my faith, they have made me believe even more in God. I doesn't mean I know have all the answers, or can justify the ills of the world, it means that all of the ills of the world still pale when compared to the elegance of a the morning sun exploding through a raindrop on a green leaf.
