2. Faith (trust)
I think it is always funny when some news reporter is covering some sort of religious celebration which is upholding something that is not based on fact. Then the reporter with a roll of the eyes says: "Whether or not this is true, it all boils down to a matter of faith", basically acknowledging the general thought that "faith trumps truth."
It is critical to establish a belief only in the above order, because a person's faith can be in the wrong thing or person. Here's a couple of examples: Jim Jones, Heaven's Gate.
