Pleased actually, at the depth of my understanding at such a young age. At least that is what they tell me, I was pretty young.<quoted text>
So what were your parents responses?
These stories are like Grimm fairy tales, they are stories to try and influence behavior, that is why for most of its history actual reading of the bible was a capital offence, people were killed for doing so, you only heard how they wanted it interpreted.
Today it is a bit different, after being re-written and the contradictory parts removed, it is an army of people telling you what it is supposed to mean, rather than the simple fact that it is written in plain English ( well the current re-write and translation anyway )
It always amazes me how people will paraphrase one part, and totally ignore another part, I laugh when they try to preach to me, and I show them how what they are saying is not even close to what it says, particularly in the context of what was being said.
