    Apples and oranges. But even if it were apples and apples, it dosn't apply because it's not faith (i.e., a strongly held belief) but rather simply an openness to the possibility. The same as being open to the possibility of a supreme being.

    Honestly, if you were looking to have an honest dialogue someone might be willing to entertain that discussion with you, but when I first read your OP it didn't come across as someone who wanted to talk, but as someone who had an agenda. Maybe try re-wording what you're asking so we can see a true desire to dialogue.

    I'm not.

    Are you a 6th day of the week crucifixion /1st day of the week resurrection believer who thinks the "heart of the earth" refers to the tomb, and who tries to explain the lack of a 3rd night by saying that the Messiah was using common figure of speech of the period?
