If you tell a Christian that faith can move mountains, and lures him to prove it, he will sit down and wait for the mountain to move like a miracle,
or simply sit there so long that he thinks the mountain has moved and later trying to convince the world that it has, giving the credits to Jesus.
On the other hand, if you put a stone mason infront of the same challenge, he'll gather his tools, make a quarry and cut the mountain into blocks,
move it piece by piece to a new location where he would build a city from it and name it after his son.
What it takes to believe, is knowledge and imagination. A good idea is discribed as an idea that you believe in. The primary function the brain seeks
by giving you the Evreka moment, is that you shall turn this idea into something. Not that you should turn Eureka moments into a habbit of weakness,
waving your hands while babbling incomprehencibly trying to reach some kind of trance state, so you can say you have been baptised by the Holy Spirit.
There is nothing holy with that. If you search for that Spirit, try turning a good idea into something good. That Buddhist who formed the micro
banking system is more of a holy man than let's say Benny Hinn or the Pope. Spread knowledge, not some 2000 year old rumour.....
