  17. don't know which I am most of the time, both I'm sure saw your edit in the 1st post, modcat, no problems, these things work themselves out
  18. how is this not about the idiom of permission? god allowed the tree of life to be eaten but did not allow the tree of knowledge of good and evil to be eaten it don't matter I suppose, people see things differently and can't see some things differently,
