I don't hold the view that the Bible is unquestionably the word of God though. I keep saying it's only my opinion and I reserve the right to change my opinion at any given time based on where my research takes me. That is hardly the modus operandi of a fanatic.
But thanks again for your earlier apology. It was much appreciated. I hope that we can now move onto more constructive discussions!
