I remember my Catholic school religious indoctrination more than a half century ago. The nuns repeatedly said "You must have faith". In other words we must believe in stuff that has zero evidence. When I grew up I realized how ridiculous this brainwashing was.
Interesting quote from a University of Minnesota biologist about faith:
"No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue."
