What initially led you to believe in whichever-flavor-of-Christianity you believe in, and would you accept that level of evidence/persuasiveness/argument/whatever as a basis to believe anything else?

I hate to disappoint but I do not have a specific flavor. I goto a church, but I could just as easy go to anyother Jesus Christ centered church.

The reason why is going to be in my 'which of the 30,000 expressions of Christianity is right.' Thread.

I can see how the way I phrased that question was ambiguous and misleading, so I'll rephrase.

It would depend on if Penocchio was lying. If Penocchio knew the answer, or at least believed he did, and answered it differently than he believed the answer to be, then yes his nose would grow.

However if he answered it the way he believed the answer to be, than no it wouldn't. It wouldn't grow even if he was wrong, because one cannot lie unless one knows or believes there is a strong enough probability that they are wrong.

It's like George Costanza says...

Just how does that lying/nose thing work?

I explained that in response #13.

You explained what happens, not how it happens, dammit!

Of course not! That would be ridiculous!

It was the magic Blue Fairy. She tapped him on his head with her magic wand, and that's how the magic entered him to cause him to come to life. It's very clear when you think about it really.

So that's where the magic came from that makes his nose grow. The reason his nose was magiced to grow when telling a lie was because he could only become a real boy if he learned right from wrong. So she make his nose grow when he lied to help teach him to stay on the right path. Otherwise how else would he know if he was telling a lie? It was for his own good really. Surly you can see that.

Also, it's that same magic from the Blue Fairy that gave Jiminy his clothes he wears (his little suit and hat) and made him Pinocchio's external conscience, as a magic guide on his journey.

Yes, was it really his nose that grew?
