  • about the only thing more difficult than finding a church that you are comfortable with is finding another theist in our little sphere of programmers :)
    • *LOL* - yeah, I hold out hope that there are others with my Christian beliefs. Failing that, I hope that I can serve others in answering their questions about Christianity and such. Granted, I'm not that experienced, but over time, that will change. :)

      Why are theists (or more specifically, Christians) so rare amongst programmers? A lot of folks on this journal system are in the UK, which as a country has more than half (maybe even three-quarters) of its population agnostic or atheist.

      Another way to look at it would be that programming is simply logic and those who love logic can easily come to the conclusion that God doesn't exist by applying their own sense of logic ("I don't have a relationship with God, so therefore he doesn't exist." [which some of your own family/friends may be striken to find out that you don't exist then, either - since you & I don't {really} have a relationship and therefore, you must not exist]).

      Don't really want to start a "crusade" or anything, especially since I don't have the answers, but rest assured that I don't look down or judge anyone that doesn't hold my own beliefs - I'm a little more open-minded than that. ;)
