This argument rests on whether one buys into the Christian mindset.

Wouldn't that make one a Calvinist, since you frist have to believe Calvin to get at Christ???

@Protoman2050,
Is that sarcasm? I was referencing a joke from Calvin and Hobbes (because my avatar is a picture of Hobbes about to pounce on his own tail).

I could not agree more absolutely true,

Nope. It's the punch line of a Calvin and Hobbes joke.

@hammersklavier,
I have been reading the Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Free Enterprise, or something like that, and there are a lot of references to Calvin, and so I jumped to a conlusion that you were rephrasing some of his dogma... I like Calvin and Hobbes too... I guess I don't spend much time on avatars...I might feel different if I had the metal powers to actually upload one... Just not my gen man... Me from stone age...Ugh!

@Fido,
Oh, it's easy, even for the technically deaf like me. Just find the image you're looking for on Google, copy said image into MS Paint, make any changes you'd like on Paint, save as a .jpg file, and upload it here. (Make sure you're uploading it in the "Upload Avatar" section!)
