Got into a conversation with a gentleman at work today. He was talking about all the different religions there were. There are two things you don't discuss at work, politics and religion. Today I discovered a polite way of not really saying much on the subject of religion. I commented on how when I was in 5th grade the teacher conducted an experiment of how well people listen and pay attention. Our desk were in several rows, she whispered something into the first student's ear in the first row, he turned to next person behind him to repeat what the teacher said, they in turn told the person behind them. This continued until each person in the class had the opportunity to hear what was whispered. The last person in the last row had to stand up and reveal what was said. Every time no matter what was whispered, people added, took out and just plain made up what was originally said. I told the man, that's how I feel about religion it all originated from the same source, somewhere along the line man kept adding, subtracting and creating different versions of the original truth. Gave him something to think about.
