Article Title: Support the Guardian, news provider of the year 2021
This article deals with the topic of faith, why some people believe in Christianity and some not ; also delves into his own opinion for the same.
The author starts with narrating his personal experience and concludes that we feel the stories about Christianity and Jesus defy logic and are somewhat funny but there are plenty of people celebrating the resurrection who are sane, intelligent and well-educated, but they are statistical inconsistencies in the world where higher levels of education are strongly correlated with a lack of religious belief.
The article makes the point that some believe the unbelievable because they have had religious experiences so strong that they are literally unable to doubt their truthfulness. The author concludes that what atheists often forget is that many perhaps most religious believers are less than completely convinced anyway. Religion tells people that faith is superior to belief based on evidence.
