I'm not sure why that is suddenly so controversial.


Here's why: those committed to a naturalistic worldview have defined "faith" as "believing things you know aren't true", or some similar strawman definition like Kazim uses (something like "believing things blindly with no evidence").

So in that mindset, when you say they have "faith", you might as well be calling them a YEC.

To be fair to Kazim, some religious people do define faith something like that, but he erroneously extends that to everyone. It is not the historic understanding of faith in Christianity.
