"I see your point and it makes some sense. The theist, however, cannot get this idea of their god. To them god has always existed and was never created. He just always was. What they are not seeing is that this is the same thing as getting something…"

"Thanks Joe for that interesting and well-written tome.  That you and your wife seem to be handling all this well makes me smile.  The thing, after all, is not the personal journey but one shared. I have never been religious and so…"

A Cubit From Heaven

My religious journey.Missed Heaven by a Cubit[1]I was in the fourth grade. I remember that it was a cold morning, just before winter. At the beginning of class, we all stood in front of our desks and recited the Pledge of Allegiance. After that, we recited the Pledge to the Christian Flag. And then, we had to recite the Pledge to the Bible ..."I pledge allegiance to the Bible, God's Holy Word, I will make it a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path and will hide its words in my heart that I…See More
