Bible for Thinkers

Liberals love the Bible, too. We just look at it differently. This is a place to discuss the Bible where you don't have to check your brain at the door. There are many ways to see it, and many ways to have it come to life.

Okay, so this isn't a Bible issue, per se, but I just read that beginning tomorrow in Prague there will be a 12-day meeting to decide if Pluto is really a planet. Huh? So, if it doesn't meet some random criteria it won't be able to get federal funding or something? For the life of me I can't figure out why that would be important. We've been calling Pluto a planet since 1930. I wonder how much it's costing to question whether it qualifies? I wonder how many people that amount would feed? I wonder if Jesus would spend time having an international meeting to decide if a random batch of matter could properly be called a "planet." Suppose we've been duped all these years and Pluto is really a moon of Neptune or something. Will they take away my high school diploma?

Sometimes I think our world is really on Pluto...unsure of what it is and at the far extreme end of the solar system...
