At this point in history, you either have to take the bible at face value or reject it. If you make your own, then your not looking for God, your
looking for religion
Uhhh...I really don't mean to offend but I think most people come here looking for neither God nor religion - it seems to me that there are a few
thousand other web sites one could visit if that kind of search was one's goal.
I have to take issue with this "take it or leave it" thing - swallow it whole, you mean? one is not allowed to taste, nibble around the edges, eat
just the creamy center? That, I think, is the definition of religion - organizations with clearly defined doctrines that are strictly enforced.
And, in the ever present circularity of all things, exposing the conspiracies of organized religions, the intentional obfuscation of history for a
variety of motives, is the point of being here.
I don't go to Baskin Robbins to fill up my car with gas. I don't study history and social anthropology to find God.
With all due respect, I think it's quite out of bounds to interject faith and the infallibility of the KJV bible into discussions, questions, and
resarch regarding history and conspiracies. Actually, maybe that kind of thing simply reinforces the idea that there is a conspiracy to repress
scholarship by organized religions - are you an agent sent here to monitor us and report our activities? should I be watching my back for Papal
assassins if I get too close to the truth?
