1. Hahahaha!

Based on the author, I'm sure it's informative!

I'm trying to be patient for this one:

Dale McGowan has an incredible blog called "Parenting Beyond Belief" and has a book series with the same same. Though I don't have any spawn and don't plan to, I'm glad others are using his books as references for parenting.

2. I'm looking forward to a simple explanation of the "Trinity",

Hah, they've been tying themselves in knots over that for 1600+ years

4. You can get an explanation of the Trinity in...

...the Religion forum. Just bring plenty of...



But that explanation WON'T be simple.

e.g., you'll need to do a little advance reading. Like the collected works of every Xian writer from about the Third Century CE, right on up to modern Sophisticated Theologians like Josh MacDowell and Rick Warren.

But there is a bright side. With any luck, you'll get the various Xian experts in the forum screaming at each other over whether or not a missing comma totally altered the meaning in the 14th-century Trinitium Of Saint Flatulentia.

Then the rest of us can bring our own popcorn and enjoy the laughs.

3. I do enjoy learning about all the crazy religions

out there. I've turned into a very minor history buff and since religion ties into world history I've found it kinda fascinating. However, not enough to spend money on a book, I'll stick to google

I also find it interesting that many of us non-believers seem to know more about religion than the actual believers.

Thanks for posting!

5. Amazon lists this book used starting from .01, but as usual the postage is going to be harsh.

I liked the reviewer who pointed out the typo in the title. Left out "is."
