Who are you and how did you become my hero so fast?

Excellent observations.

"people of all faiths prefer their own narrative to other narratives. It's absolutely a matter of preference". Calling it a 'preference' is coldly trivializing... If you pry their eyes open and take away the narrative they've entrusted their hopes, fears to, it may very well literally present a shock-of-death crisis to deal with. Its not always possible to leave job or kids or disease or home foreclosure or whatever long enough to re-learn or spirit-quest or consider any alternate theories or even just learn more about the one that was given to you by your fore-bearers. And for the less educated, faith is very much like a sort of spiritual manna in a bleak desert of sin. Suprise: You might not always get a rational reaction when you try to take this away...

Your ideas are interesting but I don't trust anonymous posters
