    My own father had a near death experience. I did not and still do not judge it. It was not my experience.. I woulds suggest a reading of Elains book `Why Religiiod` She is well respected historian in the US.

    Xfrod You are correct but neither do I tell people what to believe. Peoplr should think and make up their own mind. With some 23000 sects of the Christian faith and many of them declaring that they and they alone have the definitive answer. That to is a joke. Personally I am a Christian because I like the message of one Jesus of Nazareth. Another joke no one has ever really ask what I believed but I have been judged many times.

    I do not try to tell anyone what they have experienced. Of course I do disagree with many on their Biblical interpretation and their and the history of the Bible.

    You just said that you are a Christian because you like the message of Jesus of Nazareth. I am giving the Gospel of Grace that Jesus of Nazareth gave to Paul. Jesus was the one that said that He is the only way to heaven. Jesus was the one that said anyone who doesn't have the Son is condemned already. He said that those who have the Son have life. So, I am not the one telling people what to believe, I am merely repeating the message that Jesus gave to Paul. The 12 Disciples preached of Christ and were hated and Martyred for it. Why were they killed? Why was Paul killed?

    Most people believe in the fantasy that they were indoctrinated with in their childhood. If their parents were Christian they would have been indoctrinated as Chrsitian. Similarly with Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, etc., and every single one of them believes their God to be the only 'real' one. By default, that means that at least all but one has to be wrong.

    I have to disagree with FourPart on the us of the word "fantasies" I do not call them fantasies but they are teaching tools.

    As is The Cat In The Hat. Has the same degree of credibility.

    Some folks make no effort to understand certain concept. What is an age old practise used in teaching. Some simply have trouble seeing that.

    Metaphor is, indeed, a powerful teaching tool. I use it all the time when explaining situations to customers on the phone at work, but the Bible teaches those metaphors as the literal truth. For example, I see the story of the Garden of Eden as a metaphor for explaining how children develop through puberty & into adolescence, and to explain that once someone starts to ask questions, the thirst for knowledge will become so overpowering that they will never be content to remain in the innocence of ignorance. After all, the one thing Religion hates is for anyone to have a questioning mind. They would much rather you took everything as said. I do not see it as having any credibility for talking snakes or for cause of 'original sin'.

    FourPasrt That is a universal statement that is incorrect. There are many scholars asking questions and are religious and do not hate those who ask questions. Try reading the book "Why Religion" by Elaine Pegals..
