Belief and Faith

Belief and faith
A theist is one who believes and has faith in God.

Belief without faith
I've found that many say they lose faith but still believe in God.

Faith without belief
Is it possible to not believe in God but still have faith?

No belief and no faith
The atheist does not have belief, nor faith in God.

Question of the day: Could an atheist become a theist or religious without believing in God but having faith regardless?

Interesting question. I am one of those with belief and no faith. I find to be a pretence. Either you believe something or you don't. Just hoping it's true may work for those who can delude themselves (fake it 'til you make it) but it doesn't work for me. I require experience to create belief.
