    According to you guys, all the Bible stories are true: The "son of God" is born from virgin birth, then rises from the dead, Noah's Ark, talking serpent tempting people with magic fruit, Jonah living inside a great fish for 3 days, etc.

    If someone today told you these same types of stories, you wouldn't believe any of them for a second. Yet, these same stories instead become 100% credible because they were written from nomadic desert tribes from the Bronze Age. 0% vs. 100% because the stories are really old. That's all your mind needs in terms of convincing.

    Really?

    .....and if someone told you that by breaking apart something that cant even be seen by a microscope you could level an entire city with one device, would you have believed that ?? .... Would you have believed that a 50 foot wide rock simply flying quickly across the sky (not striking anything) over a populated city could cause several million dollars in damage to said city ??..... This universe is full of things that seem completely implausible and unlikely, yet they do exist ..... Mankind cant even figure out how to play nice with each other..Why would you think that we'd be able to wrap our heads around how everything we know came into existence ???

    You don't need to understand. Just believe.

    we can't even prove many of these things exist independent of our believing we are aware of them
