csi church suryapet
 
Bedrock beliefs can shift. Here's one example. I am in Colonge (Koln) Germany, which sprawls along the Rhine river beneath the twin towers of world's largest and second tallest cathedral. The Cologne Cathedral is a massive and beautiful structure began in 1248 and finished in 1880s. For more than 600 years a strong religious faith propelled it upwards. Although work stopped for centuries, it was belief that started and finished it. A belief that endured over half a millennia. 

Yet today while the church still stands (narrowly escaping destruction during WW2) the faith and belief that built it is gone. Inside the church it is empty of believers (but full of tourists). It is no longer a holy site. Germany is one of the most un-religious places on Earth today. It would have been unbelievable to Cologne's residents 500 years ago, that once the cathedral was completed, no one would believe in what it stood for any longer. Their bedrock faith has disappeared.

Other places with bed-rock faiths can also lose them in a few generations. It may be hard to believe in a non-Islamic Saudia Arabia, or harder to believe in a Christian China, but as the Cologne Dom Cathedral will tell you, belief is a fickle thing over time.

(Oh, for those who don't know me: I call myself a Christian believer.)
