Apologies for restarting 1 week old discussion, but this is a topic I feel strongly about, and having read this I cannot help but want to discuss it.

I consider blind faith to be the acceptance of what you want over the evidence before your eyes. Therefore this means that you are, in effect, rejecting reality. I consider this to be the path to delusion.

I consider the hope in what you want, however, to be good. But having blind faith in people is not something I agree with. I believe firmly in evidence. The only way to have faith that is "justifiable"- logical, is to accept induction and have someone who has acted trust-worthily/morally well in the past.

If it's not religious faith, and not blind faith in something stupid, I'm all for it. somewhat.

"Not blind faith in something stupid."

Like.....
What makes it 'stupid'? Also, I'm curious as to why you do like the blind faith that you do.

Something like blind faith for your family, or a group you love. People you love. Ect. If I think of more (better) examples I shall post them if you so wish.

One could argue that blind faith in people is the most dangerous, naive and destructive form available. I don't see why you'd like that.

I would only "like" blind faith if I knew the person I was having faith in was more experienced in the subject than me.

You say you'd have to know if a person is more experienced in a subject- that suggests that you'd require a form of evidence to 'believe', which is pretty much the opposite to blind faith; blind faith encourages you to embrace something despite a total lack of evidence.

I'd say that the words you're looking for is justified trust or confidence in a person, based on what evidence you have about their ability, which in this case is experience in a subject.
