my last post on this thread and i'll let you folks have the last word.
as for experience we all interpret our own experiences and reach conclusions. that is how life is done whether with spiritual or scientific things. scientists interpret their data and make the best conclusions they can with the evidence they have. so do people of faith. neither is 100% right all the time. have you read anything about the food wars lately and how now some are saying saturated fat is fine for your heart and even good for your health now? i think someone posted a thread about that on here. i've tried looking into it before and all the scientists are giving totally conflicting data and interpretations. scientists and theologians both do it. that is life!
