Well we seem to agree on that one, there's nothing odd about anyone changing their mind really.  Can be a sign of strength.

I don't necessarily agree that we all think we are right - I know that even if I were more right than anyone else (ie, had understood more than anyone else ever, but I'm not incidentally) I'd still be more wrong than right.  There'd still be more to learn, I could still make moral advances.  But that's another debate.

Since when has changing your mind based upon empirical evidence been a part of religious thought? I would suggest never!.

Science, on the other hand, can only progress if wrong ideas are discarded and better ones put in place. (e.g. Newton by Einstein).  The willingness to change in the face of observable evidence is the great strength of science.

In the meantime I just don't believe that Jesus walked on water. I suspect most Christians don't either.
