    But my latest post is not confrontational in the least. In fact, I think it's rather generous considering your accusations above.

    Come to think of it, I meant to ask you to explain that last line in your confrontational post. What is the "other end of the see-saw" from religion?

All I'm asking is what that is. Might you be referring to atheism?

    I understand you like to be ambiguous in your posting on this subject so you don't have to commit yourself. That's so you leave enough room for equivocation.
    Well, gee. I actually thought that was rather obvious.
    I was not "equivocating" as much as you were dancing around the obvious.

    Is that right?(1) It's not an attempt to define the world and the universe?(2)

    Meaning what exactly? (3)That faith, or belief in something or someone with no basis in reality is worth fighting to hold on to? That's exactly what all you religious people do to varying degrees. My point is that it's not, especially now that we know so much more that contradicts the foundation of biblical faith.
    What?(4)

    "The whole story"? (5) Really? Come now!
    You said yourself that it's subjective. But wait, your subjective interpretation of biblical meaning and application is, what, more, what, objective? That's cute! And predictable.

    Please forgive us all, Lord, for we know not what we do!
    So, #4 seems to be the "simple question."
    And, as I said, the others seem to be rhetorical.

    I suppose though, if we want to pursue this we should probably peel it off to another thread before somebody complains about us hijacking the thread.

    The lengths you go to in order to avoid committing is astounding.

    What is it that you are expecting me to commit to, bud?

    You and Frodo are two ends of the same pole, in my view. Extreme literalism over the same bit of philosophy. There seems no middle ground, whatsoever.
    Me, i like to take a line of thought and explore the concept, get on the bus and see where it will go. I don't mind at all wandering down dead ends, or going out on a limb or two.

    By the way, there were actually six questions in that post. I missed one. Sorry.
    Do you wish for me to take them and give you an in depth answer to all of them?
    I can do that, but it might take a little time. I was a work and just dropping in every now and again for a quick read and reply.
