What is doubt? According to Kuntuzangpo in the Kuntuzangpo Monlam:
"The mind of dualistic grasping is doubt"
Does that mean to relinquish dualistic grasping is to have true faith?
Is faith and realization the same thing?
Blind faith is doubt appearing to be faith.
You tell a fundamentalist anything that their god doesn't exist
and see how defensive they get.
Is that reaction none other than a manifestation of doubt?
Blind faith is running away from truth.
Faith is knowing the truth.
