I havn't got any EEs yet. I'm currently without cash, so I'm saving up for the box set of all three!

So am I. 

I was using a previous quote from tonks to get my point across! Maybe it's fiction maybe not. I happen to feel they probably have some truths in them, but some are too far out to be real. I mean- stopping the sun in the sky? I know it's God's miracle if you're christian, but the tides would be weway messed up.

I'm not ragging on religion- I'm agnostic.

Not if it's God who's doing the stopping. "He's got the whole world in His hands." *hums*

Anyways, I hope you do take time to read the all-time bestseller.

Yeah, but even if he could stop the sun there'd be repocussions for many things all over the world. Plus a lfair, all oving God who has favourites? Hmm...

That said there is some stuff that makes sense- creation for example.

But lets not turn this into a theological argument when it's meant to be related to LOTR

It's pretty good all right, but it's definitely not fiction, my dear.

Everyone has a right to believe what they want. I personally believe the bible is fiction. I am not telling you it is fiction, I am just stating my belief. This is an educated and thought out opinion on my part. I was brought up Roman Catholic and I have my reasons for feeling the way I do. Please, do not undermine anyones personal beliefs here. You have the right to believe it is truth, I have the right not to.

I'm sorry if my post offended you both in any way... I'm well aware that we're all entitled to our own opinions. And no, I have no intention of turning this thread into a theological argument.

You didn't offend me. But please do take into account that not everyone at A&F is a believer in the Bible. Therefore phrasing such comments as 'it isn't fiction' as 'I don't believe it is fiction' is a much better way of going about things, it doesn't sound so much like you're trying to tell people than state your own feelings.
