Truth examples: 

mathematics, why does one plus one equal two?

mechanics, how do pistons work?

navigation, why did the plane change course many times while flying from L.A. to China?

nautical astronomy, How did the Polynesians in canoes get to the Hawaii’s Islands in 300-600 AD.

heat, why is my home warm and cold according to my wishes?

steam, what causes the whistle in my teakettle?

electricity, why can I have lights at night or not? 

I don’t know the answers to some of these questions, however, the answers on one continent are the same as on all the other continents or at sea or in space.

Concepts founded in reality have a tendency to be stable.  Those which are not founded in reality may tend to mutate and vary with time.  The sad fact is that the christers' own holy book recognized this principle with the parable of the house built on the rock, versus one built on the sand.

They just failed to learn from their own lesson.

Deep thoughts Joan. Perhaps you have intentionally led me to ask; Why are these scientific truths universal while theistic truths are chaotic? How could theistic truths be so differing and still be truths? Isn't it comforting to know a nice warm fire will be comforting anywhere in the world, even with strangers whom may not even speak your language? Could religious beliefs make the fire more comforting?  You are right. In this case knowing how combustion works in a fire is not near as important as knowing how to enjoy it, and the comfort of knowing it can be enjoyed equally around the world.
