Not pessimistic, just aware of the historic trends:)-

It would seem optimistic to assume that the other way.

As for the use of the word faith, thats is exactly what we are dealing
with here as the proof of the assumption is mostly in the gut more so then
in the knowing.

Its not a dirty word Jeff, at its best it can express the willingness to
follow a path you have no real way of knowing the outcome of or even all
the reason to show it will come out badly.

(in short, dont let the word be tied down to the judeomulamicchristian
types cruft)
