In response to the latter part of the previous statements.
You mentioned that doubt is my downfall and that anything beyond reasonable doubt would be reliable.
I agree with what Paul DeVries says and he states it fairly clearly in this:
"Actually, as odd as this may sound, I think that doubt is not a hazard to vital Christian faith. Doubt is the act of questioning. Doubt is the humility of a mind asking real questions and seeking real solutions. Surely one can believe and question at the same time. In contrast, unbelief is the "uncola" of faith. In biblical usage it always connotes stubborn resistance."
In short I would say that doubt is a sincere question and unbelief is the unwillingness to hear the answer.
I don't understand what you are alluding to when you mention the killing of millions. What?
