Flicka, I agree the analogy doesn't fit. The equation 2+2=4 can be proven to be true and 2+2=5 false by simple demonstration and isn't a matter of belief.|
If I hold 2 pennies in one hand and 2 pennies in the other and then combine them, anyone can clearly see that they make 4 together and no rational person would argue that they make 5. Even very young children understand it, and in fact that's the hands-on approach to teaching basic math. No "belief" is necessary.
Religious faith is totally a matter of belief and no similar concrete proof is possible.
