Was that post intended for me? I didn't realize that we irritated each so much. I guess I never really picked up on that.

I always have called myself an agnostic because I just can't bring myself to believe that there is no God. I am not sure if it is all that methodist church upbring, or just the hope that there is something better out there. I don't think you should have a phD or a fancy vocabulary to have to understand the nature of God, though. I think it should be as natural as taking a healthy dump (pardon the vulgarity). I just don't always feel loved in that unconditional way they say God loves us in. I don't think any forms of communication with God are valid either. I equate it to the old saying that just observing something changes the natural progression of events (the quantum reality experiment). Trying to talk to God could lead a person to really believe he is talking to God, when actually it his is own mind. I am not sure about that.
