The problem is that you are beginning with a wholly counterintuitive
hypothesis. It would be like starting off "Let's assume that a unicorn
can win the American League triple crown...." The response would be
"huh?" I think some of us are saying "huh?" to you. The difference is
that many of us were likely at some point where you are now
theologically and have worked through it and see how poorly it
accounts for things.... and that sounded much more condescending than
I hoped it would....
