I know there are many who hold certain things as faith or a belief in something other than themselves. I recently had a conversation with someone I have known 40 years. My reluctance to 'believe' God was coming to save his people on 6 July, 2014 seemed incredulous to him. Did I not 'know' that the Earth was the centre of the Universe? What was I some heretic to place the teachings of a Pope, equal to that of some sinner? My point is that over time many things we see and do today would have been called impossible or the 'work' of the devil. Many have died or been tortured because of some faulty belief.
Medicine, TV, Airplanes etc. have all been named 'Magic' at one time or another. History seems to ignore the things that cannot be explained and we all know that the Earth is less than 5,000 years old, the 'bible' tells us so.
This story was told over countless centuries by our Early Ancestors, Etruscans, Egyptians, Greeks even the Romans but did not make it into the bible verses. No proof, just a few legends, temples, artifacts and ruins. Everyone knows legends like Troy, The Spear of Destiny, Temple of Solomon, Goliath etc. can't be real, can they?
