Personally I find it equally important to be aware of the messenger's motives.
As in most cases, taking the easy way out, is not the best answer when it comes to verifying historical data.

Yes but as Sinny was trying to explain... In the words of the famous late philosopher, "It is the mark of an intelligent mind to be able to entertain
a thought without accepting it."
Furthermore, our friend of decidedly naughty nomenclature may also have been hinting at the well known axiom which begins: "People with small minds
talk about people..."
Right. Well.. first of all, I believe it goes - Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people - and it doesn't
apply to the point I am trying to make. It is a comment on uneducated people's general interests, that they don't seem to care to much for deep
thinking but will rather fill their heads with facts about sport stars, actors, musician and so on. It has nothing to do with questioning a persons
motives, which is a very reasonable thing to do, especially when it comes important matters like this.
The basic thing is, when it comes to stuff like this, you CAN'T just take your own experience into account. Many seem to think, that just because it
works for them it should work for everyone else. In most cases we know that it doesn't really work that way, even though we would prefer it to, but
when it comes to religion this logic no longer applies, cause for some it is a moral duty to spread the word.
But just because your happy, it doesn't mean what you are doing is right. I mean, i disagree with almost all religious people, I disagree with
hardcore capitalist, I disagree with hooligans and neo-nazi's and anarchists - really just all kind of different people. But I know why they do what
they do - they do it because they are happy with what they are and they believe it works. They don't ask why the people in charge of these things do
what they do, even though it is always obvious that there are a large sum of money involved, they just listen to the message and never question the
Is there really such a thing as questioning something to much, or what are you trying to tell me?
I don't think so. No such thing as dumb questions, only dumb answers.
