2005-06-26 [SilverFire]: Still wanna be a Catholic?
2005-06-26 [iippo]: I'm still considering. See, I want to be Christian, but not this Finnish sort of (because it's boring) but whatever I am, Rajat will probably need to convert to that, which would mean that if I convert to anything, another person needs to do that and I'm not sure if he'd want to. I could always convert to hinduism, or just ignore all this stuff and have a multi-family.
2005-06-26 [SilverFire]: He would convert to it?
2005-06-26 [iippo]: Taking that he doesn't know the difference between Catholics and any other sort of Christians then I think his reply would be 'Sure, why not?'
2005-06-26 [SilverFire]: O.o >.< So is he majorly religious?
2005-06-26 [iippo]: No, not at all.
2005-06-26 [SilverFire]: O.o Blimey.
2005-06-27 [iippo]: Why? Should he be?
2005-06-27 [SilverFire]: It always seemed to me that religion was more central to eastern cultures than to western.
2005-06-27 [iippo]: Mmm. I've come to find out it is quite opposite. China doesn't even have religion whatsoever and most Indians just make sure they don't eat cow. *shrugs*
2005-06-27 [SilverFire]: Yeah, well China's commie, so they don't count :P But, fair, I guess.
2005-06-27 [iippo]: Most of them are really curious about church though and want to learn about religion. It is great to have a theological conversation with a chinese person hearing about Christianity for the first time. They ask all the right questions.
2005-06-27 [SilverFire]: Such as?
2005-06-27 [iippo]: All the 'hows' and 'whys' that kids don't ask when they first learn about religion.
2005-06-27 [SilverFire]: O.o Because they're too immature to comprehend what they're being told? uh-huh.
2005-06-27 [iippo]: Mmm, I'd say it's because children see things differently. Faith and maturity aren't mutually exclusive.
2005-06-27 [SilverFire]: Never said they were. You find me a child who can properly comprehend cause and effect in all it's ways - not just 'I kick ball, it moves' and infinite regression, and an unmoved mover, and I'll accept that kids are mature enough to fully comprehend what is being forced down their throats. However, kids at that age don't question their faith, because they don't have the experience, or generally intelligence, to see that half of it is utter bullshit.
2005-09-10 [SilverFire]: Dude! There's a Dunbar! XD
2005-09-10 [iippo]: Where and what... oh yeah, is there!?
2005-09-10 [SilverFire]: YUp ^^
