    If I walked with you now, would you harshly interrogate me, beat me up, spit on me, mock me, brutally whip me, and make me carry a cross to nail me down and leave me hanging for hours to suffer and die?

    ...you would. And I still love you with an everlasting love and continue my faithfulness to you.

    Astrophysicist Robert Jastrow, a self-described agnostic, stated, "The seed of everything that has happened in the Universe was planted in that first instant; every star, every planet and every living creature in the Universe came into being as a result of events that were set in motion in the moment of the cosmic explosion...The Universe flashed into being, and we cannot find out what caused that to happen."

    Steven Weinberg, a Nobel laureate in Physics, said at the moment of this explosion, "the universe was about a hundred thousands million degrees Centigrade...and the universe was filled with light."

    Scientists have no explanation for the sudden explosion of light. The Bible does... God simply spoke.
    Do you think it is likely that the Christian Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, created the Big Bang?

    God is Real.

    It doesn't matter if you believe in Him. It depends on who you are.

    How does biblical history prove the existence of God? Most of it has little to no evidence, and the evidence that is usually expounded seems to be subject to confirmation bias more times than not. The existence of God is the single largest assumption one can make. You are saying that something infinitely more complex than the Universe exists. This requires a lot of justification in order for anyone to support its truth value, seeing as the God of the Bible is omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent. I've yet to hear anyone make an even somewhat competent argument for such a being.
    Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion man.

    It could have said something like "Jews suck". What then? Would you have seen it as encouragement to become anti-semitic?

    Why do you want to be convinced?

    That is not an explanation, just wishful thinking. At least scientists admit it when we cannot (yet) explain something.

    There are exceptions to every rule. :S

    What are my chances of having that message [your message] reworked and redelivered with more enthusiasm, vision, and overall, more Ne appeal?

    I couldn't say. If there's an Ne dom/aux in the area who shares a similar opinion, he/she might come up with something.

    I was aiming for something like that, but I'll settle for grins.

    You're a very logical girl!

    Default Modernity and MBTI

    Modernity means searching for origins.

    And for religion it means searching for the origin of a particular religion. And we find that the scholarly account of the origins of a particular religion and the religious account of the origin of their religion are quite different.

    This discrepancy between religious myth and historical fact has been highly disturbing for religions.

    The response of religions to modernity has veered between fundamentalism on one hand, and abandonment of religion on the other.

    A search for the origins of mbti brings up the same discrepancy between what is said about mbti by practitioners and the historical facts.

    And the response to modernity by mbti is almost the same as the religions.
