> why is faith not definable by us?

<<< Thanx Jai. I thought I had accepted Dictionay Dot Com as the authority for this question, and we did/do define faith in any of its many iterations. When someone cannot see faith as an abstract only available to the minds of mankind, I am willing to sit, and wait, and see if perception and perspective might update.....

New list: centipedes, squids, giraffes, emus, lice, and halibut, don't connect with the concept of "faith". They may act out in a "faithly" type pattern of behavior, but they don't acknowledge us when we tell them about "faith". They are never heard or witnessed explaining faith to any other member of their species. I remain unconvinced that faith is innate and not learned. So the issue is learning. Which [nouns] learn in the abstract and which ones don't? [nouns] => people, places, things, ideas.
