The Other I

Another point of view

Filed under: Just Stuff — theotheri @ 8:38 pm

PS:  I have just said in my post today that people who predict the end of the world which then does not occur on schedule are not convinced by the evidence.

But in fairness, I must admit that the evidence is not conclusive.  That was the whole point of Festinger’s findings.

Believers can argue that they are convinced by the evidence:  that the world did not end is evidence that God accepted their pleas for mercy for the poor sinners of the world.

It never fails – there’s always another point of view.

It’s exasperating sometimes.
