Is that a take on the House quote? "Reason doesn't work on religious people. Otherwise, there would be no religion."

Of course, that's why I misquoted it since you are the House expert.

The original is "Rational arguments don't usually work on religious people. Otherwise there would be no religious people."


I'm inclined to believe in parallel worlds filled with dark bound Snow and Odd adventures.

Yeah, I noticed I made that error after hitting the post button and didn't feel like fixing it.

There was a religious girl in college that really wanted to save me. She was sweet enough but she was really upset that her constant quoting of Bible verses didn't make me not gay, and I kept trying to explain to her that since I didn't beleive the Bible was an ything more than a book of m ythology her quoting of verses from it did not win me over. So what would she do...find more verses to quote at me. :-)

That never worked with me either. I remember yelling one time at someone saying "The bible has no influence on me when you reference it!" I always had a bible though since I was 5 I would read it. I asked my parents to get me one, even though they didn't believe in it, they got it for me. My parents think there must be a "religious gene" because they don't know where I and my sibling got the drive to seek it at such a young age without their help. My sibling and I were close and we were "in it together." We'd even beg to go to church and they allowed it but I didn't believe in it. I still pursued it until one day I did believe it. I've mentioned I'm not one who interprets the bible in a literal manner. I even understand logically the case of the atheist. Ayn Rand addressed it the best. That is the other half of my brain now. LOL. It's quite perplexing to my faith in Christ. It's like I say "I understand there is no way you are real! This is one big sham. Why are you still in my heart? Why do I seek You my entire life?! You give me such struggles! I love you Christ, don't leave me!" LOL
I've also mentioned to you how I feel about the gay issue and Christianity, so I won't be redundant.

Anne Rice is doing a wonderful job with the Christ the Lord (not communist)books. She's brave and bold. You were mentioning in the new series thread that this 3rd book might not be as intersting since it will closely follow the bible. I'm hoping for her unique take on it to still be present.
