Interview request with a theist
After reading on the Thinking Atheist pages the long and sometime downright strange apologetics of our theists member, I realised that, due to my lack of religious sentiment, apistevist nature and abscence of religious fundamentalist in my inner circle, I had no clue as to how they perceive the world and clearly don't understand them at all. I thus got this idea of inviting one for an interview so that they could explain to me how it is to live and think like a theist.

The format would be rather simple, I ask in each post a serie of questions to which I espect an a personnal answer. I do not want to read quotes of their Holy book with some explanations. I have already read both the Bible and the Quran in my free time, but has an historian this type of litterature loose all its magic. I will refrain on commenting on the truth or validity of the answer. The idea is to allow me to walk a few hundred meters in someone else shoe (so to speak).

Is there any volonteer?

Freedom is servitude to justice and intellectual honesty.

Theist is kind of a broad statement.

If my theism is sufficient for your purposes, I might be willing to participate.

RE: Interview request with a theist
I would actually be very interested in interviewing you since your understanding of judaism seems to be excellent and rich. I think there is several historical questions that I would love to ask you since your expertise might shine a new light on old knowledge. Right now, I am interviewing Alla in a broader way. Because of it, I can't really start a new interview with you (plus if you volonteer, I might like to do some research on Ancient Hebrew history for interesting subject). Can I contact you in let say two week to schedule somehing?
