You find that interesting, Dr. Bob? I sort of thought that's what "faith" is. And that it takes a conscious effort to remind ourselves otherwise. Either that, or my "faith" is rather circumscribed to the basics and I'm pretty open to the particulars. (In other words, my faith in any given religion is not that strong.) One of the two.
But perhaps your apparent surprise explains the faith board, with all its many and sundry traps for the unwary. :)
