    I find it crazy how two "rational" people can come to wildly different conclusions when given the same evidence.
    i dont, its a reflection of human nature and how unpredictable some of us truly are.

    The reason I included the word "innocent" here in the opening post is because there might be a case for thinking that many people; many believers, have been deceived and in their innocence (or ignorance) they have been persuaded that the person giving the information (or by a document which professes some absolute truth) is authoritative and must not be questioned.

    Religion is very seductive and the masses are easily seduced. Although I am also (perhaps conflictingly) of the belief that deceiving others is a rare offence; deceiving oneself is common.
