We are talking about beliefs and faiths ,which may not entirely be founded on objective reality .Going to the Empire State Building and looking out from one side ,we may capture only 1/4s of Manhattan but one can always extrapolate the balance 3/4ths and conjure up a view as close to reality as possible.In any case faith becomes the viewpoint only when the limitations imposed by the intellect and the finiteness of imagination preclude a much larger vantage from which one can observe and form a view.
