Actually, no, no faith predates Christianity, contrary to the many lies of our liberal media, classrooms (of all "educational" levels... please note the quotation marks), pop culture, consensus thought, etc., and as usual, yahoo! news is a joke. This type of nonsense is no different than the nonsense that I heard in college, i.e. from my Sociology professor, someone I had a lot of exchanges with.
Truth is absolute, not relative, not subjective, not dependent upon an aforementioned consensus/status quo or time frame. Truth never changes and is absolutely parallel in all cases.
Christianity is the true faith, and please note the definite article. Don't take my word at face value, though; seek the truth. God has given us the faculties of reason and wisdom. Indeed, use them. You will know-- not assume-- the truth if you do indeed seek it, and since God created the universe, don't tell me that any false faith that originated after the fact somehow predates Christianity. You can't predate the true faith.
When I was four, I stood in church, looked around, thought I was in the right place, but wondered how I could know. I sought the truth and found it. I unfortunately left the faith at one point but thankfully returned.
