Nonsense. My 'faith' = your 'confidence,' = belief on the best available evidence. If you don't believe in historical figures like Abraham, Jesus, & Mohammed, there are words that describe that, but I'm not going to use them. Abraham was the father of many nations, and Jesus & Mohammed are the founding members religions look to. I'm unsubscribing from this thread. I didn't mean to get involved where my faith is so clearly unpopular. It's notable that to avoid conflict, I'm leaving the "Faith & Religion" thread to people who think they have none.

My faith says the devil is real, as blind faith!

As the old saying goes... "If you can't take the heat, it's best to leave the kitchen". I'm sorry you have such difficulty with opposing views, business kid, but I actually consider that a common fault among those who accept hearsay as evidence.

I am curious though... what other documents from 2000 years ago do you find valuable instruction? I do find amazing and incisive words of wisdom from ancients on social affairs, including politics (check out Dan Carlin's "Hardcore History" podcasts... Xerxes and Caesar are especially fascinating) but Science? There basically was none.

There was engineering and a body of hard won knowledge on how to grow food, build shelter, and tend to animals but zilch on how the world works or came about, no cross-checking system was yet formally in place. One thousand years later many still believed in vampires, werewolves, faeries, witches and demons... oh wait! Some supposedly modern folk still do! Will wonders never cease?
