For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom.—1 Corinthians 1:22
But…but what do you call someone who insists on both wisdom and a sign? Answer: “wormme”.
The Dawkins post generated very deep, very thoughtful responses. Each one merits an equal reply. Which I can’t possible do in a timely fashion. I’ll try to address everything in coming posts. And this is gonna take several. At least I remembered that hi-tech WordPress feature, “categories”. Referencing will be easier for you.
Or avoidance, if you prefer. Because apparently I’m about to give Christian witness.
(FULL DISCLOSURE: this won’t be full disclosure. One aspect of my salvation will be left out. No one benefits from thinking I’m insane.)
(INDIGNANT DISCLOSURE: No, I’m not insane. Maybe you are. I’ve taken the “ha-ha” test about fifteen times. That’s more sanity documentation than you have!)
(SELF-REFERENTIAL DISCLOSURE: It is full disclosure to state that something isn’t full disclosure…right? Don’t claim you weren’t told you wouldn’t be told!)
(DISCLOSURE DISCLOSURE: “Disclosure” stops making sense when read too often, too fast. Like how “weird” suddenly turns wierd.)
We all set? Whew. Just thinking about this is draining. Even finding the place to start forces me further and further back. It seems I should begin my tale at a few years before my birth. Tricky, in a court of law. It’s “hearsay” witnessing.
But I think you, the jury, will soon learn that my sources are as honest as people can get. They are Mom and Dad.
