Some things make me twist my head in disbelief that the question was even asked or the statement made -- Or this one: Man wrote/translated the Bible so it must be faulty,wrong, not real (or in other words untrue... fiction) - (because man is faulty - presumably)
But things like that make me ask things like this: Who named the sparrow? Who decided that white is white and blue is not green? Man? If we assume that what man writes is wrong - then there are absolutely no truths in this world at all.
Absurd, I know.
Ever heard someone say "If I wasn't there I wouldn't have believed it myself" - seems to me that this is the exact description of Faith. You have to have it to know it is real and once you have it - you may still no be able to articulate the argument of its existence. "Because my faith is not real *to you* does not mean that it's not real."
(Just a thought - food for conversation)
If a person can find peace in their life through their own faith, why would another want to tear them down for that? I know the sword has a double edge - and the cut can go both ways - I guess I'm just wondering what the motivation is for trying to tear down someone's faith - what can be gained from it?

I'm sure I will get down votes for this because it is not the popular answer but honestly, for many, it's a feeling of superiority over the other person.
