Mysterious ways

J&M nails it once more. I do wonder sometimes how our religious brothers and sisters rationalize the fact that the vast majority of what they believe is open to such a wide interpretation; you'd think that if what they believed was true then their deity (being able to do anything) would have been able to be just a little more precise when communicating what is supposedly the most important message we're ever going to get. I also love the way they convince themselves that the more opaque and unlikely something is or that the harder you have to work to believe it, somehow this makes it more "true"...  mysterious ways indeed.

HV, you're not wrong; childhood indoctrination is a mighty powerful thing.
