It could be said that the opposite of faith is doubt. But doubt coupled with wisdom can be what is needed to find faith.
Doubt can lead to questioning..."1 want to know for myself, not just be­cause you say so.”
It's through wisdom, (the intellect) that we can aquire faith by challenging and questioning.........

"Don’t believe any­thing just because I say it or some wor­thy being says it. Don’t believe anything because it is held to be traditionally true. Don’t believe anything because you’ve read it. Believe it is truth from your own experience. If you put it into practice and you find that this particular meditation or spiritual practice leads to a diminish­ing of greed and desire in your mind, then you can trust that. If you find that it leads to a diminishing of anger and ha­tred and fear in your mind, you can trust that. If you find it leads to clarity, so there’s less delusion, there’s less feeling of being cut off and disconnected, you can trust that. You put it into practice. That’s how you know."

Shakyamuni Buddha

This is how Buddha shows the way to faith in his teachings. Faith and wisdom are inseperable..... a wise person knows this and has faith.

There is a limit to intellect and beyond that has to rely on belief. Self belief is stronger than intellect.

follow the heart and listen to brain, sometimes follow the brain and listen to heart.

lack of intellect and excess of belief is better than lack of belief and excess of intellect.

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;" Psalm 111:10 So, faith IS wisdom.

wisdom. faith is belief without proof. you may think that's a good thing if you're religious, but apply it to other areas. should we have faith in our politicians? should we have faith in the people who try to sell us stuff on the street? should we have faith in the strangers who call us on the phone? faith makes you a gullible fool.
