Quite the contrary Mr. Frodo, delusion is best observed from the outside.
Nicely captured the idea in one sentence theVOID!

Ah the king of misquotes returns! Smile

Clearly you grossly misunderstand Christianity. Reason is central. You're making the classic faux pa of requiring scientific understanding using what is possibly the extreme opposite as your tool for doing so... faith. You further compound your appearance of ignorance by dismissing faith so easily.

I agree that Christianity can be studied as a cultural phenomenon.

So if, fr0d0, that's a misquote - then I presume you deny it yourself?? And you somehow were not - in that quote - implying that you believe Christianity does require belief in order to be understand?

And my reply was... how can I 'get it wrong', if I am asking a question and not making a statement? Lol.

I do not understand what you mean by 'got it wrong', if I was merely inquiring.

Your premise was wrong, so the answer to your question is clear.

My premise was a question. I was inquiring, so I don't know what you mean when you say I was 'wrong'. What's wrong with asking questions?
