There is no reason to rely on faith alone, If you do so, you may land in some different situation.Situations that we went through with Jim Jones and David Koresh. Situations like this are simply faith that misleads people. People lose lives. Reasoning is very important. We do have a wonderful mind. Someone who's not even educated, even illiterate has a wonderful mind. If you don't utilize your mind, just following what someone said, that probably is not right.

FAITH, INTELLIGENCE, AND GRATITUDE
One beautiful thing in the Buddha's teaching, which the Buddha had stated, again and again, and everywhere" Do not just follow just because I, the Buddha, had said so. So you follow if you are satisfied, after your investigation , investigate what I said, and when you're satisfied, you may follow. Don't follow just because I said so. For that I give and example, at that time, this is 2600 years ago. When you wanted to buy gold, look at the gold, check the gold, rub the gold with other stones that showed the clarity of the gold, cut them, burn them, and when you're fully satisfied, then buy it. Otherwise don't take it, just because I said this is gold.
