I run most of what I have learned in life through a biblical filter. because I believe it to be absolute truth that doesn't change. and the bible covers a great multiple of sciences
Some peoples base lines are Socrates ,Obama, this religion ,that religion,, you name it people come at things from different perspectives in life. And that helps formulate their opinions.
If things don't contradict what I have learned in life then I consider them plausible. May be it is or may be it isn't . That sort of thing.
It interesting to study how the systems of the world operate from a biblical point of view and be able to see things develop in my day and time. I'm not saying the Illuminati is. I'm saying may be it is and may be it isn't

Can you imagine one of our current politicians having the forethought, wit, planning ability and people skills necessary to launch the Lewis and Clark expedition?
[QUOTE=2tall;1038336]Ken, I think you meant "which" God. Unless you are into a whole 'nother thing here. In "which" case I think you are talkin' bout "wiccans" not wickens! Now, having been the spelling marm for a minute, just think how many things may have gone awry in the Bible due to all the translations. It is a great book. But I never will take it literally, because we do not know what it says.....literally.

Even if one was smart enough to do that, they would never get by all of the environmental impact studies required of such an imposition on the environment.
Most of the early colonist were of one Christian sect or another. Deist were generally found among the men of higher education and were student/children of The Enlightenment. Men such as; Jefferson, Paine, Adams and to a lesser extent Washington. Washington vasilated between Deism and Christianity.
