    I admire your tenacity.

    I haven't read the book. But, I do believe in absolute truth.

    None of us see 100% clearly.

    I can respect that.

    Yet, I remain disturbed by any "hole-poking" of the Bible. If you have big
    problems with certain parts of the Bible, that's one thing. But, if you are
    only taking issue with "trivia" I am a bit confused. Are you claiming
    inaccuracy in big parts, or "trivia"?
