    Just musing on how patiently you have been waiting for a 'bite' all this time, but the fish just arn't rising to the bait.

    Are you suggesting that there are fish here who believe that the crucifixion took place on the 6th day of the week with a 1st day of a resurrection who try to explain the missing night time by saying that the Messiah was employing common figure of speech of the period but for some reason decline to provide any examples to support their belief?

    I wouldn't know, but you don't seem to be getting a nibble, do you. Perhaps there are no fish in that particular pond. :laugh: Your worm is drowned.

    He didn't understand. I just explained it to him. He still has a drowned worm on his fishing hook and no bites. :laugh:

    Since it's been awhile, perhaps someone new looking in may know of examples.
