You'd probably find that Australia which is roughly about the size of the USA, also is a land of many contrasts. deserts, virgin rain forests, snowy peaks, vast farmlands, tourist meccas, industrial parks. Australia is sought out often because it is like an Island out of time, dinosaurs roam across the northern end of Australia still, and the landscape is harsh and beautiful too. The west as you will know is a resources boom mecca which is keeping our economy percolating well through all the worlds issues.
We are also blessed by a lack of irrational thought from irrational people posing as "real" Christians, which tends to damage any country. Look what "real Moslems" did to Iran and Afganistan.
Look what Jack is doing to the boards he frequents. With guys like him, I dont need to delve any deeper, which is a sort of shame, I did sort of want to discuss the bible for its merits, not its errors, but guys like him wont let others get off his doctrinal tightrope.
Anyone else noticed that?
