    and then exacting from the contributors--to whom a little means so much--a double share to guard the treasure!

    TBH it's more than a book. Remember there are probably hundreds if not thousands of editions and interpretations of that book. The original message and the one that hopefully most believe is still one to be admired.
    Yet I digress. One can disagree by the contents as you do but you still cannot deny that it's more than "just a book" which was the meaning of my post. In fact, you just confirmed it.

    As a true person. As for me being atheist, I'm more of an agnostic, but my beliefs are somewhat complex to fit either of them. Rest assured, I'm not religious.
    Edit: I meant as a person who existed. I must have mixed up my language.

    That is indeed what orthodox Christianity teaches, Fully god and fully man.

    How can anything be "Fully" two completely different things...seems to be counter intuitive, does in not?

    From a quick review of my post I called it an image neither an icon nor a portrait. Very different that what you're trying to present. BTW if you read my post I explained what the two sides were and said NOTWITHSTANDING, you know that means "in spite of"... Artistic license isn't a wholesale disqualifier. "The most accurate depiction we will come across" in no way signifies it is the correct depiction, only what I believe will be the most accurate, artistic license notwithstanding (there goes that word again...)

    There wasn't a single drop of European anything in the Bible. No one was white or there abouts. They didn't even know that, what was modern day Europe, even existed. It all takes place in select few areas of the Middle East.
    LOL....

    Apparently Rome was in the middle east.... not in Europe....

    My bad. I just saw the eyes part and thought that you just referred to them being overly wide. You're also correct on the images part. The mind does play tricks after all

    I appreciate your honesty and will admit I could have been a little more clear in my original explanation...
