    Mark Twain was a genius at seeing past people's facade's and understanding their true motivations.

  • I 'interpret' it as fact, more or less. It depends on your definition of faith - be it the generalization (and original context) or solely towards religion as Twain, at the time, was referring.

    Lest we forget that despite the fact he was critical of religion, he did unfortunately turn, or rather, return to it in his later years - proof in the fact he was a Freemason.
