Why God would need to communicate with humans in such a bizarre fashion?
I don't know ... it always strikes me as being very strange that Christians believe God is TRYING to communicate something vital to humans in the worst way and yet .... he is incapable of expressing himself in a clear concise fashion which EVERYONE can understand. He created the universe and life but is somehow unable to communicate with what he made in a way that his creation can easily understand. When one points this out to Christians, the stock reply is that "non-believers" don't understand because they don't have the holy spirit. If that's the case, then it can't be very important for anyone to understand these enigma non-sense writings; they would only be some kind of accessory for a few elites to munch on.
