This wound beginning I wanted to lead to a slight diversion off-topic.
Hawthorn Ent wrote:The Bible mentions that 1000 years is a day to God. 2 Peter 3:8 (New International Version) "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day ". But this is debateable with many Bible Scholars.
If you have a close look at the wording of god's words, you would surely detect that a day is not 1000 years to god, but that it is like that. Similarity is not identity. Studying literature doesn't mean someone has to throw his mind into the litter - literally reading the bible has to be correct literally! In other terms: You can be a skeptic in reading, interpreting (and believing to understand), as well.
I didn't take time to read all three pages, though I can remember the first parts of the thread. Once upon a time I read that Crowley wanted to have religion with the methods of science, or somewhat like that. Might that be a way?
