What are some other ways that faith is a superior method to arrive at the truth?

Besides the fact that it is unfalsifiable so we can always be assured that it is true

    Faith is the only way to arrive at God's truth, just as science is the only way to discover the truth about the natural universe.

    Pretty much anything else. Faith means believing what someone else told you without proof and rigorous testing, without applying your own thoughts or emotions.

    You think you have it all figured out, just like Rab-Shakeh.  Well, you don't. 

    Belief cannot be a proof that something is true.

    Faith is mostly a willingness to find out for ourselves.  Every year, millions experience God for themselves.  You should, too.  It's the logical thing to do.  Don't bother moving the goalposts.  It's more evidence than you have to shore up your fantasy that there is no God.

    Faith is easily falsifiable. Faith is not a path to truth because using faith you can believe anything including contradictory things. Using faith you should simultaneously be christian, hindu, buddhist, muslim, zoroastrian, jewish because faith doesnt give you any way to discern which one is real and which one isnt. You just pretend to believe one over the other. Faith enables you to believe whatever makes you feel good. Faith is believing things without good reasons. If you had good reasons you wouldnt need faith.

    "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."  -- PZ Myers

    The world is what you make it. There are 7.8 billion different points of view on anything you can come up with.

  • Unless you are willing to look past your perception, understand beyond your comprehension. Faith is useless to you

    Once convinced by the truth that Jesus is the Son of God as He claims to be, then by putting your faith in Him, you become one with Him.

    Faith means trust. Simply you are trusting God is who He says He is. Trust is the glue that holds relationships together.

    If you don't trust God, He can't/won't help you.

    God cannot lie. If you don't trust Him, that means you consider Him untrustworthy.... that means you are calling him a liar; this is slander against your Maker. That makes Him your enemy.

    Jesus called himself “Teacher and Lord”. Go to him and see what he has to teach you. If in fact he is the “Lord” he claims to be, then he himself will reveal that fact to you. He doesn’t need me to convince you of his deity.

    If he reveals himself as ‘Lord’ to you (and if you willingly choose to make him ‘your’ Lord…) then as a bonus he wil save you from a terrifying Christ-less eternity. He’s not going to force you or kidnap you.

    It's actually the opposite, because it is unfalsifiable, it can't be true.  Beliefs can be anything you want and unless someone can produce some physical evidence, nobody can prove them to be true or false.  

    Update:  Think of it like this.  If you don't even go to trial how can someone be judged guilty or innocent?
