But one of the things you are overlooking is that prior to Judaism, ALL, I repeat, ALL beliefs about the nature of existence and ALL, I repeat ALL, attempts to address the fundamental questions of life were based on subjective and non-verifiable assumptions. Judaism and Christianity were the FIRST examples of thinking based on experiential, or objective criterium. In the case of Judaism it was the Exodus. an historical event (try to imagine a second Passover if it never happened) and in the case of Christianity, the death and Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, two historical events.
