How do you know?

How do you know that the earth is flat? How do you know that Jesus walked on water? How do you know that Jonah was swallowed by a large fish and spent 3 days soaking in the fish’s stomach acid? How do you know that Noah filled a wooden boat with 1250000 species of animals, in one day, in the middle of the desert? How do you know that Jacob’s selective breeding program worked? How do you know that Mary was a virgin? How do you know what comes after death? How do you know that Jesus rose from the dead? You need faith to convince and force yourself to accept what reason and common sense clearly dictate to be silly and laughable stories.
The biblical notion of a flat earth wasn’t laughable until we went into space. So is the belief in a sky daddy who talked the whole universe into existence for the sole purpose of watching me play in the shower and taking notes so he can judge my performance after my death.
If Jesus rose from the dead, so did Muhammad who flew to heaven on a winged horse. The bible is proof of Jesus’ existence, the noble Quran is proof of Allah’s existence, Twas the night before Christmas is proof of Santa Claus’ existence, and the 3 little pigs is proof that piglets can build houses of straw, sticks and bricks.
