Jesus said in John 14:6 "I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except through me."

I take such ideas seriously first, before ridiculing them. Otherwise, I'd certainly reject all the religions of the world except brute power
and technical proficiency. But then I'd just be someone's tool ALL the time.


So, what that Bible verse said could be read
exactly, as a math equation. I=Way, I=Truth, I= Life. This squares with what he told the Roman governor. "For this I came into the world...to bear witness to the Truth."

CIA Headquarters building has a motto:
"You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free."

If Jesus is the Truth, then you can come to the father via the Truth? Where are ya then?
By "the Father" he meant the the first cause of
all the galaxies. But was Carl Sagan
as close to Him as Billy Graham? I think so.

And Diogenes searched the world...in search of honesty? Maybe Aristotle can help us here. Before you say you knew Diogenes; you were a friend of Diogenes; and that I am no Diogenes!"
let me just say, "It's true! I'm not!"
I'm no Diogenes.


Blaah Blaah Blaah! Fun!
