    The oldest computer can be traced back to Adam and Eve, it was an Apple, but with a limited memory, one byte and it crashed.

    Like much of the Bible the creation story is a fairy tale, imo.

    I see it more as life lessons. Reading the stories, seeing how folks react to situations.... Ya read it literally, read it historically (in the context of the time), metaphysically, allegorically, as a parable...and yeah even as a moralistic fable.

    Like life, I feel everyone is our mentor...some as examples of how to act, some as examples of how not to act.

    But the creation story is like all creation stories right up till today, just what the authors think is their best guess as to how we got here. And obviously we still don't have all the information.

    I think that's a fair secular comment.

    I would say not all stories are equal, like scientific theories, or works of art, etc., some are good, some are not so good; some have something to say, and some burn out in minutes.

    One of the qualities of sacra doctrina is their timelessness. They speak to the human condition, and despite the millennia, they are as relevant today as they were then. The wellspring from which they flow is inexhaustible

    Why do the preacher and the church ask you help by monetary donation...but when you ask for help recommend prayer? I mean, who should be better at it? Who should have the tighter connect?

    From Quora (by Jordan Yates):

    "Hey, Dad? Have you seen the scissors?"

    "No, but you can use these until you find them," said by her now-deceased dad while handing her the requested scissors

    That joke reminds me of something that happened years ago.

    My DB belonged to a bizarre reform "synagogue", and the group had a Purim event. One of the (relatively) recently bar mitzvahed boys read his PC version of the whole Megillah. Confused pretty much all of the adults and most of the kids (including my DB's friends' kids, who happened to be Roman Catlick [Catholic].) I believe that I left the main group to divvy up my potluck contribution (I brought homemade spiced nuts [the receipt contained sparkling wine {I wish that I still had said receipt iykwim}].)

    This conversation happened earlier today between a neighbor and myself (edited to remove names))

    Neighbor: "Do you know someone named Barry *.*?"

    Me: "Does he look like a cross between a gorilla and a Neanderthal Man?"

    N: "No, but he's really into dinosaurs."

    M: "Big brother."

    *****************************************

    The neighbor volunteers with DB on a committee that she belongs to, and he's the vice-chairman.

    Can you say "headdesk"? I knew you could.

  17. One of my favorites:- A small community in Southern Ireland where the Catholic Priest has to go into hospital for a longish stay. He tells his little flock that if they have any concerns during his absence to go to the local Protestant Vicar. The flock meet in the local hostelry to mull over the situation. They decide the situation is OK but are worried about exactly how they should address the Vicar. One of them is elected to go and ask.

    He knocks and explains his mission.

    "What do you call your Priest?" the vicar asks. " We call him Father" replies the little guy. "Ah, then call me 'Father' " the Vicar responds. "Thank you" says the guy, and returns to the hostelry.

    "You won't believe this" he tells his mates, "he wants us to call him 'Father', him with a wife and six kids!"
