Really! It's true. For instance, some people actually know about the older myths and the traditions borrowed from other faiths yet still follow Christianity!
Why would they do that, you ask? I can only answer for myself, but a lot of it has to do with understanding that early writings of the Church were able to see the Divine inspiration in the older parables. No problem. Just like I've got no issue with accepting evolutionary theory (despite how it "proves" Genesis wrong), I've got no issue seeing the truth within the Bible, even if the book isn't a literal account of human history.
Any other faithful people feel the same?

I agree with SAHM and OP. I also want to point out just because we say we read the bible and did research and decided that we do not believe in god does not mean we are saying those that do are uneducated. We are just stating what process we went through to come to our conclusion. Yes I understand some will come out and say this is what I learned so you all are idiots, but if people do not come out and say it that does not make it implied.
