In my opinion, this does not mean that faith, is, or is not, one of these things. However, I believe that Marianne iis asserting that faith is such thing. Did I read that correctly?

Would you prefer the truth, that us humans in the universe are insignificant like a grain of sand on south-end beach and that even great people like Einstein, Leonardo and Jesus will not even get an honorable mention when the universe comes to an end.
