What about it ? Can theists endure with confidence a close and careful examination of their religious beliefs, or do they fear that if they are scrutinized too closely those beliefs won't hold up, that they'll prove false and illogical ?
Since I am an American and most familiar with the Christian religion I will use that as my test case, but these questions apply equally well to Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, or any other theistic beliefs that may be out there.
