    Haughty John Haught adumbrates how blind faith can lead to horrors ,maintaining that faith envelopes ones entire being for the better, whilst Alister Earl McGrath maintains that first, believers find the evidence and then use faith for certitude; both ways conflict with Russell’s dictum, ensconsing believers in such that both definitions end in being just blind faith! Please remark about this!
