Nice post and well put.

I definitely think you're mistaken. It very much looks like you and Aklie are talking apples to apples. You just seem to approach things from a much more cold, stern and legalistic view. »

Even satan himself can appear as an Angel of the Lord, and do good works in His name, to distract you from the path of True Righteousness

Ever notice that just like there is no age limit on stupidity, there is no IQ limit either? kind of explains a lot huh?

I don't recall the story behind it, but when I came back across it, it was just too good to not resurrect, mwahahaha!  :) Oh, and regarding Dos Equis... I cannot improve on that, so I yield to you sir/madam.
