You know what I challnged some fundemantal belivers that the Miracles performed by Christ may have been simple Magic Tricks or hypnotism. The point I was trying to put across was that if a illuisonist like David Copperfield did live in the era and perfomed the tricks he did we would have a religion named after him. At this point I think I just angered one of the fundamentalists who shouted like a small child:

"Christ, is Risen."
"Christ, is Risen."

Which I thought was pretty funny looking back at it. My personal motto is that to doubt is sacred.

Mike, good motto. If we revere truth, and if God is considered to be the highest truth, then very high standards have to be applied to any godly truth claims. Otherwise we run the risk of deifying a falsehood.
