Thread Name: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion
Subject: RE: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion
Interestingly, we were at her relatives for lunch on Sunday. As he is to be ordained this summer, the conversation led as ever to the only subject he knows, religion. (I've tried football, guitars, beer, knit one bloody purl one, you name it but he can't help trying to get his sister and I into his hobby cum profession.)

I can't recall the context as I frankly wasn't that interested but because of this thread my ears picked up when he said the college approach had been that you will always find two conflicts in especially the Old Testament, and reading the Ancient Greek scripts will only exacerbate this. "But between two conflicting statements lies the truth."

I chirped in with pointing out that in my thesis on a completely different subject, the truth may not be derived from either of two publications you may wish to cite.

Then I looked down and carried on eating my pork.

Oh, the carnivore sub topic? It's alright, my dentist says we can eat meat. Either we evolved that way or the little baby Jesus made us that way, whatever.
