37. Oh, I'm dreadfully sorry.
Edited on Thu Mar-01-07 07:26 PM by Morgana LaFey
I thought that when you said loosely based ON Holmes, that you were, in fact, claiming that Holmes was the source.

loosely based on the teachings of Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science.

But now you're saying:

I never claimed, nor would our minister, that Holmes originated any of these concepts, which I imagine are as old as human thought itself. I merely pointed out that he had founded a denomination based on the principles.

So, for you "based on" goes both ways -- based on Holmes/Holmes based his on... all the same. You can see how I got confused.

The verdict, however, was "a load of crap".

My RSI church -- yes, I'm a member of one myself -- had exactly the opposite reaction. They loved it.
