Quote# 707

Back in college in the late 60's I took a Great Religions class. I remember studyin the Vedas, etc. as well as a lot of other religious writings. Maybe I wasn't the brightest bulb in the string, but I remember praising God that I was a Christian. The Old Testament (for Judaism) and the New Testament for Christianity made so much more sense than the others. Maybe it is because I was raised in the western tradition, but seriously, those other writings just seemed to be more than confusing.

Ecliptic reasoning, not as obvious as circular reasoning, but still stupid.

Wow, and you've never questioned your faith since? You're a true fundamentalist. I only lasted from 1995 to 2009.

"I remember praising God that I was a Christian."
Do you remember ever believing anything even slightly different from what you've believed your entire life? Your college was a complete waste.

Oh, I seriously doubt that you were, as you said, the brightest bulb on the string.

Have you actually read the Bible? Hope you aren't wearing two types of cloth at once!

You'll notice he said he took the class, not that he passed it. Understanding the subject is what's important and he admits they confused him, not college material methinks

No maybe about it.

You can remove two "maybe's", Kristi. You're definitely not the brightest bulb in the string; you're one of the feebly flickering ones that we know will go out any second. And, the reason you (supposedly) understand Christianity better than other religions, is that you've been hearing the stories from the Bible since you were little.
