Interesting reply! If you do not mind, I'd like to respond to this verse.
and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
I am afraid I have to disagree with you. It is not speeches or words that make me think the way I do and believe the things I do, but the evidence behind the speeches and words.
If there is no evidence available for a claim, then I do not understand how someone can believe it and be intellectually honest as well.
