    I voted this: "mostly parables/metaphors with historical fact", which is the only option scientifically proven. Amusing.

    I'm joking, I'm only just realising that this thread was a joke in the last couple of posts. I take threads seriously when 99.9% of the time they are intended as fluffy conversations.

    Scientific or not, I was curious in what people believed.

    Though I forgot to put down 'unsure' but whatever.

    Hey, this wasn't a fluff thread!

    Why does everyone think what I post are fluffy threads!?!

    Peguy had the honour of being Quixote, I think his avatar was Quixote for a while, I absolutely love that book BTW. I remember when I was finally able to read and appreciate it. It was one of few books which when I finished it felt like burying a dead friend. I had to mourn its passage.

    Oh.. no it's an interesting poll. I thought the 'complete nonsense' option, and the fact that it was picked was amusing.

    I think the forum is like that though, its sort of inverse alchemy, turning gold into lead.
