    "Hope" and "Faith" as concepts have no inherent value whatsoever. They cause people to carry out unnecessary risks and place their confidence in something that may never turn out good for them. What value does "Hope" and "Faith" have compared to "Knowledge" or even "Doubt"? With Doubt, people keep asking questions in order to improve their understanding, and ultimately, to improve the world. It is no coincidence that the most secular age in history is also the most prosperous and happy.
