No wonder faith is required - there is no logical sense to be made there.There is a lot of faith within the spiritual path too. It is not just one thing, thats why it is so difficult to gain deep understanding.
That you dont find any sense in it is not something i can fix for you i can only speak from my own understanding (and i could be wrong)
In my opinion, faith is the excuse people give for believing things when they don't have a good reason. I.e. Faith is not a pathway to truth. Your response has confirmed that for me.
