Subject: Feedback from Web page

Hi there,

found you page by guessing environment Canada's web page, and wound up here.

you invited comments, so I thought I'd drop you a line.  I am a Christian.  Not
the swinging from the chandeliers type, just a down home, read the bible, love
Jesus, respect people in general kind of Christian.

I say this in fairness, since you are frankly declaring your religious stand,
so I do too.  This is not meant as a slight, or a platitude.

The most interesting part is how you have taken a line out of context from the
bible about God saying we should bash in our kids heads on rocks.  I find it
fascinating because people who declare atheism, often call down Christians who
take the bible out of context and manipulate it to their needs at the time.

If you read the entire psalm, you can clearly see that the writer is referring
to the soon to be victims of the fall of Babylon (which happened as predicted,
btw), who should realize that their fate will be so bad, that they will not
want their children to have to live and suffer as they have.

So, if you are going to make blanket statements, you should probably read the
whole text beforehand.

The next interesting tidbit is your list of "gods".  I paste...
the Father, Son & Holy Ghost
__ Allah
__ Jehovah
__ Jesus

these are actually all referring to the same God.  Different religions, yes,
but the same God.  Also, this represents 40% of your list.  Any statistician
would suggest that you have answered your own question here.  In your example,
belief in God outweighs belief in any other god by 4-1.  Perhaps if you read a
bit further in the bible, you could come up with a few that are in direct
opposition, like Baal, for example, but there are many more mentioned.

Anyhow, I enjoy a good spicy theological discussion, so I hope I have your mind
working a bit.  I'll check back to your page to see what you come up with.

I don't mind a reply, if you want to carry this on a bit, I'm game.

Take care, and I hope you find what you are looking for.
