Sigh, you press my memories farther than I care about really. . .
There 'is some real history in the Bible,
If I can believe in American history now, I could believe in the Bible back then.
There are Biblical lessons that taught practicality in life,
If I can believe in game theory now, I could believe in Biblical practicality back then.
There are parts of the Bible that contain humility, kindness, empathy.
If I can believe in nature and nurture, humanity and habit, now, I could believe in those parts of the bible then.
There are religious families which lead through example, who show themselves to their children, as people worthy of their trust in them.
If I can understand human nature, patterns, and such now, I could believe in my parents as worthy of my trust then.
Though I'm an atheist now.
My faith back then was not unjustified, did not appear from nowhere.
It was. . . Bah, I'm rambling.
