In an interview with Public Radio, Hamer also claimed that his testing showed an inclination towards transcendence and spirituality, and NOT towards a belief in a god per se. He emphasized the importance of seperating spirituality from religion. He also claimed that in testing for spirituality, members of the clergy (various religions) had consistantly scored quite low.
Hey Lost, good to read you!

Please see my above post to Mr. Wiggles on where I personally stand when it comes to his findings. I read a portion of his book. To be completely honest with you, I only read to the point where he described his findings when it came to women (very early in the book). Call me biased if you likeÖbut his findings were very telling to me. My own laymen understanding read me to think, that his findings implied, that he had to discard the subjects that were females because the parameters of his studyÖdid not work if they included females (Most had the gene). To be honest I was a bit let down, and hope I read it wrong.

I don't know if anyone will ever know for sure.
Just thought I would pull out a contemporary resource and see what they said. The Cambridge Companion to the Bible, Second Editio,n doesn't even mention any of the longer endings (3 isn't it?) It just ends that section on Mark like this:
"The theme of the hidden nature of the divine purpose is implied in the strange ending of Mark (16:8), where the women who have seen the young man at the tomb say nothing to anyone but are filled with astonishment, fear and trembling. Those reactions, however, are precisely the ones attributed to Daniel (Daniel 10:7-12) after God has granted him visions of the end-time and the throne of God. The very terms used here by Mark are the same as those found in one of the ancient Greek versions of Daniel..." - p.529
I did not know that.
Me neither. But those favoring an intended ending at 16:8 often rely on Mark's theme of mystery as a reason.

Yeah, some people do get caught up in the details and missing content of the Bible and miss the point, I did it myself once upon a time, but hey, each to their own right?
I'm with ya.
Nothing more distracting than them pesky details.

That's what your religions wants you to believe.
But you prove here daily that you don't really believe it either.
And I love that part.
Matthew 5:11-12

11 ďBlessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

See Clownie,

You're not even paying attention.

If, as you claimed, your deity is pleased when Christians represent the Gospel, then surely he would be pissed at Christians, like you, destroying the brand.
Do you think that's why your deity caused all those tornadoes in the Bible belt on Christmas?

Or maybe there just weren't enough Nativity Scenes on courthouse lawns.

Or maybe your deity just can't actually do anything.

Naturally, as it is a theme.

I would also suggest that the Markan community was a Pauline sect who weren't that fond of the disciples' followers. So leaving them out could have been an intentional act.
