But all mining and other ventures of capital which are speculative require initial faith. Sometimes the faith does not pay off. One spectacular failure was the poseidon Nickel boom in the 70s, but without faith NO venture capital projects would ever get started. Faith is a step we take when we do not know the outcome. It is a step "in faith", or in belief that we can do something. Without faith, NOTHING new would ever be achieved. As I said, for me the biblical pasage has ALWAYS meant that men use/need faith to do great works. This is self evidently true. With faith (plus our skills abilities and technologies) we can accomplish anything, even the movement of a mountain. Without it (despite our skills abilities and technologies) nothing can or will be done, because nothing will be attempted.
