Bless you.<quoted text>
The type of person best suited to attempt an accurate interpretation of the Bible is a historian (not "an historian", I don't like that) who is also a rational skeptic.
Christians are without a doubt the worst suited for the task.
They invariably believe, because they must, that their version is the correct one. Faith makes this a necessity. Who wants to devote their lives to beliefs they are completely unsure of?
You're really on the ball today. I'm guessing you were born on Wednesday.
I was born 5 minutes ago, with all my memories intact. It's an odd feeling. I feel as though I have had a life, and have posted here before.
But I know I haven't.
Nice to finally meet you! My name is Hiding.
