There is a room and in the middle of the room there's a big ancient package wrapped up so beautifully. In the room are two good friends. Let's call
them Tom and Jerry.
This ancient package will not be opened till the appointed time has come. It cannot be touched, only studied visually.
Tom and Jerry began to have an argument. Jerry claims that there is something in the package and by faith there's diamond inside the box according to
what has been passed on to him throughout generations.
Tom contradicts Jerry by telling him that how can he possibly know what is inside the box? You only have fairy tales from ancient time telling you
that there is diamond inside the box. You have no evidence at all, so why do you assume then? For all I care, there's nothing inside the box since
time immemorial. You have no evidence at all to support your claim.
But Jerry says, I believe what has been entrusted to me. I trust what has been passed on to me. When the time comes to open the box, I will be holding
the diamond in my hands.
And the two argued and argued endlessly.
Tom says there is nothing inside, Jerry says with certainty that there is diamond inside the box. One doubts, one believes. But, they cannot open the
box till the appointed time has come.
So, as an outside observer, how do you correctly judge this?
