AND ONE MORE THING:

Once again, Mike, you are wrong. That definition is not ubiquitous by any measure
. In fact, your definition seems more fitting for faith
Belief that does not rest on logical proof or material evidence
Faith is a belief, trust, or confidence, not based merely on logic, reason, or empirical data, but based fundamentally on volition often associated with a transpersonal relationship with God, a higher power, a person, elements of nature, and/or a perception of the human race as a whole.
In summation: I do have a standard for belief and you need to take back your previous remark that I don't.
