3. We have facts, in politics and economics.
We have facts that show what works to stimulate the economy, and what laws help that.

In religion, we have belief, but not scientific proof.

Some people pray and say that they can tell that it works to change their circumstances.

I, on the other hand, have gone through baptism, church membership, praying, etc. and nothing changed. My life was still terrible. I was more depressed because the church people would not help me find a job. I decided that if God works through his believers on Earth, then God wanted me to starve to death and spiral into a deep depression.

So I stopped going & stopped believing. And people who tell me I did not have enough faith, are insulting me, I believe.
