Subject: RE: BS: I'd like to believe that there is a God
Joe, People pigeon-hole each other constantly, on every subject, not just religion. And there's nothing one can do about that.

I csnnot make another see anything the way I see it. The whole contents of any of the world's libraries prove that,[never mind 'net discussions.].

And Joe, believe it or not, other people think that you and I, severally, have got them dead wrong. ck! (How wrong can they get    :-) ).

And then there's how different sects of various religions think they're right and the other sects wrong.

people need to have patterns of understanding to get along. An interesting question might be why more people don't say more often,"I don't know."

hence - Q.Why did the children of Israel spend so many years wandering in the desert?

          A. Because the leaders wouldn't ask for directions. (No doubt they just kneeeew where they were going.)
