comment is emuna supposed to be blind faith?
@Yishai some people can feel this meaningful inspiration by reading about greek mythology or hindu philosophy. if that is the basis of your faith, then it is not based on reason. I termed blind faith as referring to all non-rational inquiry based.

@Yishai mesorah, you mean something like the kuzari argument? inspired faith i think is in the category of blind faith, no?

comment is emuna supposed to be blind faith?
@Matt the question there was what is the distinction between blind faith and simple faith. here i am asking what is the mitzva of faith that we are obligated in. i.e. is it enough to believe blindly or one must investigate. conversely, if one investigates and believes through the evidence, perhaps this is not enough until one believes blindly.
