*the sound of crickets chirping*
I guess if God really exists, that was his way of telling me: "WTF do you want me to convince you that this is the truth??? It's a bloody cult & you should know what you should do next!"
Objective examination of virtually anything in the Bible spells the death knell of any genuine belief in it, IMO.
I found that critical thinking skills, which is contrary to what the Borg wants you to develop, also trumps beliefs.
IMO, objective examination requires critical thinking skills.
