    Again, isn't this the definition of "faith", like in Webster's dictionary?  I would suggest  you need something else in there to differentiate  the definition of  "mindfact" from "faith".
    As in "mindfact" is a form of tunnel vision, where the person......and so on....
    Just a suggestion you might consider.......




I really doubt people will be looking up faith on Urban Dictionary but...

Mindfact -  (n.)Something that you believe to be absolutely, undoubtedly true, regardless of the presence or absence of any evidence proving it so, and despite any and all evidence that is contrary.

Usage - place the word at the end of any statement of opinion. - (i.e. Albert Pujols is a terrible baseball player. Mindfact.)

Faith isn't necessarily the absence of evidence.  It's the absence of proof.  But I agree, there are some very strong similarities between the two "definitions".

"Do you believe in God?   Do you believe God can do anything?   Do you believe God can make a rock so heavy he can't move it?"   That was the first question I got in Philosophy 101 in the fall of 1969.   The professer told me if I reported on the WS (he was a Mets' fan), he would give me a "C" in the course.    Guess what I did.

And that's why I never argue with a philosopher.

Also, i had this conversation with a 10 year-old know-it-all.  It was the most frustrating 20 minutes of my life.

But he doesn't use the word mindfact in that post. Who coined the term mindfact?

First single-word usage of it I can find is:

It's a great movie through and through.  Mindfact.

And first multi-word usage is:

Pudge > Schneider in every way, no need for me to check the stats (mind fact).

But I didn't do an exhaustive search.

Tried narrowing the time frame and ticking a few extra search options and those are still the firsts I came out with.

He put sportsfan's quote in his sig, but he didn't (as far as I can tell) use "mind fact" or "mindfact" first.  I thought it was him too - probably for the same reason - but I can't find any evidence to support that.

I am pretty sure I didn't invent it, but when I posted that Pudge vs Schneider post it was related to tom's signature.
