Subject: RE: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion
Well Musket, whether those above are pseudo-Christians or direct descendants of Jesus himself, all *I* can reply to them is long OR short versions of the points I just made.

They are doing their picking & choosing according to subjective interpretations... whether their subjectivity was drilled into them from childhood or chosen from a "one from column A and one from column B" list that they 'think' they perused carefully. The very act of choosing ... even choosing to choose "none of the above"... presumes subjectivity. I have tried since about the age of 16 to decide 'rationally', but it could be argued that is itself a subjective choice. (I think I can combat that notion, but to those who have already picked one from column A and one from column B, MY arguments are just my 'opinion'.)

It is all a matter of comfort levels and how badly they need answers to questions that some of us don't believe HAVE answers.
