That was an absolutely unneccessary comment, relative to what I posted and was communicating, completely unhelpful, but I forgive you.
It's important, in relation to wisdom, that people not allow their preconceived bais or prejudice to get in the way and cause them to "throw out the baby with the bathwater" and encourage others to do the same.
There is a principal which is a bar against all information and proof against all arguments, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance. That principal is called contempt, prior to investigation.
We must be free to access the Bible for metaphysical wisdom or to illuminate a truth, as we please, without having to take potshots from the gallary with the label "religious". I understand it's a touchy issue, but people and ideas deserve an open mind and the benefit of the doubt.
Context and framing is everything. Always consider the context and the frame of reference through which an idea is being communicated, without assuming and jumping the gun. Thank you.
