Is "faith" the only important element in practicing Buddhism?

A bit different than most other religions, faith is not the only important element in practicing Buddhism. It encourages and appeals to questioning, reasoning rationale and the clearance of doubts. The recommended process, in sequence, starts with learning, contemplation, practice and affirmation which builds unshaken faith. This process is repeated again and again resulting in a transcendent spiral of spirituality and purification. Faith also brings vow and vow brings more practice.
