    I was trying to say that the word "believe" is loaded. It is perhaps a failing of our language.

    When you say you "believe" in evolution, surely that is not the same as saying you "believe" in Jesus as the Son of God. Once is acceptance on scientific evidence of a theory that has been changing over the years. The other is acceptance on faith.

    •  Note the distinction (0+ / 0-)

      between "believe" and "Believe" in the original subject line.

      One is just "I think it's true" the other is more loaded with larger connotations.
