I am a man interested in faith but I find I have none. So I am curious, how is someone without faith supposed to go about obtaining faith?

You may be like me, a leap of faith without evidence or experience doesn't make sense. I prefer to call my religious thinking 'beliefs' and not 'faith'. I have been a student of the paranormal and spiritual subjects for decades and my beliefs were formed by what my logical reasoning concluded was most likely to be true.

All people have faith for example you had faith that someone would answer your question or you wouldn't post it. You can get through life without faith. If you had to logically decide every action every day you would never get anything done.
You may be talking about a specific kind of faith perhaps you can enlighten us as to what kind of faith you need to find.
I meant faith in God or gods you ninnies. Or well the spiritual in general.
First start by understanding faith. Faith as noted by some other posters faith brings different meaning to different people. If we were to describe what all of these people mean by faith, I would suggest that we would get to the dictionary definition of complete confidence. So, ask yourself- in what do I have complete confidence. Moreover, what does complete confidence look like. I would suggest that complete confidence looks no different from assumptions based on a person's current experience and knowledge that a person cannot help but make because the alternative is nonsensical.
