    The P versus NP problem is a major unsolved problem in computer science. It asks whether every problem whose solution can be quickly verified can also be solved quickly. I am giving a short theological solution.

    It has to be P=NP in not an atheistic-nihilistic-secular but rather the Orthodox understanding of Christianity. The driver knows better about driving than non-driver. Baker knows more about baking than non-baker. Professional knows more and better about the profession than amateur. Surely, Christians know better about Christianity, than non-Christians. Because Christians are not crazy, nor outlaws, nor expelled from humankind despite the current absurd: “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” (Ben Stein, YouTube).

    A computational algorithm in Orthodox Christianity is the action plan:

    1. formulate task or problem,
    2. ask the Orthodox Christian God,
    3. get the answer.

    And another question arose: at what stage is the legalization of Christianity and the legalization Intelligent Design (i.e., Creationism, Creation Science)? Intelligent Design was positioned as a scientific question in this video:

    You believe you have access to the original Christianity, however I cannot trust it to be orthodox. The only way I would join is if it were for practical reasons such as in a marriage. I'd probably never accept the story that it was an orthodox church. It is claiming a lot.

    Christianity is legal, unless you are in an Islamic theocracy. So not sure what else you would be talking about.

    And Creationism and ID are religious ideas, not science. They are not legal to be taught to children in public schools of advanced nations.

    Will a Catholic know more about being a Pentecost than a non-Christian? Will a JW know more about being a Baptist than a non-Christian? Will an Eastern Orthodox know more about being a 7th Day Adventist than a non-Christian?

    Many atheists have studied multiple forms of Christianity and will arguably know more about Christianity as a whole than a strict sectarian.

    It's an oxymoron, like military intelligence.

    Yes, I once had to smuggle a Christmas pudding into Saudi Arabia, for a friend.

    You could get your hands chopped off for that offense, and as a reminder to not do it again.

    As a matter of fact, the person whom I personally know who knows the most about Christianity is an observant Jew, and @KenS also has known him and I think likely would agree.

    That is not necessarily a correct assumption.

    Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

    So if the Father has come, as I see has happened, then it is reasonable to consider that they never knew Jesus the Christ.

    Regards Tony

    On that trip I flew into Abu Dhabi on Christmas Eve, on the last flight out of Riyadh. The Emirati customs man asked me to put my suitcase on the table so he could check if for illicit stuff (drink, porn etc), but then asked me where I had arrived from, so I said Riyadh. He gestured for me to take my suitcase back (no point in inspecting it if that's where I'd come from!) and said by way of conversation, "How you like Saudi Arabia?". I looked him in the eye and said, "It's good to be back" (in the UAE - I was living in Dubai). He laughed, shook my hand and said "Happy Chrrristmas". It made my day.
