What would Jesus Do?

There are certain things that you learn over the years. Never pee against the wind. When your wife/Girlfriend asks that question "Do I look fat in this" Always say no. Above all, Never discuss Politics or religion with people you don't know. I have learned each of these lessons by trial and error. Especially the Politics and Religion lesson.

Today, I had a customer walk into my shop to talk about computers. He was an older gentleman who asked multiple questions. I politely answered all his concerns. When he was getting ready to leave he asked, "Can I share the Bible with you?". I said, "No, I do not discuss politics or religion during business hours". He asked me 3 times and 3 times I gave him the same answer.

The end result was that this person became visibly upset and accused me of being uninformed. Then huffed out of my place. Here is the question,

"Am I the uninformed person or is he uninformed?"

"The Word of God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish," Einstein wrote from his home in Princeton, N.J on January 3, 1954, a year before his death.

I tend to agree with Einstein on the point that the Bible is in fact a collection of primitive legends, written by people catering to an uneducated mass of people. The stories had to be simple and easy to remember.

I leave you with this thought, I feel that he is the uninformed person. After all, "What would Jesus do? "
