Regarding the lines:
godsfavson: "I am quite well read"
bear: "I am not well read."
I find it notable that most of the atheists and anti-christians I come across seem to like to think of themselves as highly informed and smarter than the average person, and like to point it out, often asserting that they know more about the Bible than Christians, when in my experience, they usually only regurgitate quotes removed from their context which they've found on atheist web sites, and don't really know much more about the Bible than what they've seen critics point out. I'm not saying that this is the case with godsfavson, but I would like to mention that Bear's humble approach is a good example for Christians and atheists alike.
