5. "faith" debate
Here is the main issue - I percieve...

Words are but containers for duplication of the speakers
thoughts into the mind of the hearer. Unfortunately even at
BEST only a poor copy is made...

We all filter words through our knowledge, experience, and
beliefs thus arriving with thoughts from the words which we
hear...

No 2 people have exactly the same experiences, knowledge or
beliefs - thus the thought are always distorted to some
extent....

---
Now my belief is on the surface we are all unique and
disconnected - but on the inside - the world of thoughts - we
are all connected and the same due to this connection... Or I
should say I do not believe but "I do know" - there
is a big difference..

Take care
