I would like to note that it is very enjoyable to me to have received comments from people who, while disagreeing with me and perhaps even seeing my views as naive, are happy to converse with me in an intelligent and engaging manner. It is is a nice change from the mocking hostility I often see on the Internet directed toward theists (and, even worse, creationists). It’s nice not to come up against the assumption that I’m an idiot because of my worldview too. Thank you to Kevin and Kae and Christian and others for their input.
On another note, I do promise to post things other than heavy-handed, poorly worded attempts at theological discussion. Honestly. I’m sure I have other things to talk about.
