Obviously pfatt,chisox, no apology necessary, I was perhaps being a little too cryptic rather than just saying what I meant but I didn't want it to be a 10 page journalistic essay. Anyway if anyone who has read these posts finds the exploration or explanation of Christianity interesting, or even if you are an educated Christian, I highly recommend "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis, or anything by C.S. Lewis, as he is recognized as probably the best Christian apologetic writer of our time. You will not be disappointed I guarantee it.
