Damm the tactic of selective quotation is a real habit former isn`t it, you forgot the bit about ".....but by a 2,000 year old religious text the veracity of which is assumed in an act of blind faith" that should go on the end......

So you don`t put any credence in the new testament then?
What else do you call a position that is adopted against the bulk of the evidence, which attempts to introduce the supernatural to plug many gaps and has no positive evidence?
What are you then JP? The "my faith..." statement infers belief in some sort of supernatural power which one is it Jahweh, Allah, Ahura Mazda? Can`t be the God of the bible because you just said you aren`t a christian......
