Untrue. The DEFINITION of religion include leap of faith.
The DEFINITION of philosophy does not.
If you NEED a leap of faith-- it's RELIGION. It may share some aspects of philosophy, but the FAITH bit makes it religion.

"Pre> first man: I think, I think I am, therefore I am, I think.
Establishment: of course you are my bright little star,
Pretty files of your forefathers fruit
And now to suit our
Youre magnetic ink.
First man: Im more than that, I know I am, at least, I think I must be.
Inner man: there you go man, keep as cool as you can.
It riles them to believe
That you perceive
The web they weave
And keep on thinking free." /pre>
I much prefer
"Cold hearted Orb that rules the night
removes the colors from our sight
red is gray, yellow white
but we decide which is right and,
which is an illusion." Justin Hayward
