What's really funny (and sad) is that I was thinking this right before you revealed it:
"as long as you're on their own terms, they think your time is theirs to waste. But the moment you bring up a few issues of theodicy, they've got somewhere else to be."
No time for skepticism, Dr. Jones!!

Repeat after me: a book, is a book, is a book. You can't establish the truth of anything merely because it is printed in a book. If you could, everything written down would be, de facto, true.
A: But it's not an ordinary book, it's the Inspired Word of God(tm).
B: But how do you know it's "inspired"?
A: It says it is!
B: Oy vey.

Oh ho ho, I used to try to argue with religious types. Boy did I learn how silly that was, and in a hurry. Let me tell you, don't try to be in debate AND be religious. After a while, something snaps. Poor Carly...
