I truly mean no disrespect, especially to those with faith.

I only posted after I read Diamond's post "Tough to be Catholic these days"

I simply started to think and wondered how people would react if it was somehow 'proven' that some of the things stated in the bible never occurred. How would we react?

This is not meant to insult people, but to question. If religion cannot be questioned, there is something wrong with religion.

What I meant by"What is a fact is how do we know that these things are proven? If I havent been to Australia how do I know it exists? Because someone tells me it does? How can I trust someone to tell me what is and isnt fact?

As in, say, "what would I do if the Pope discovered Jesus's bones?"

I don't know.

William F. Buckley, Jr. said once that he would convert to Judaism if that were the case, in case anyone is interested.
