You gave me

Reader comment on item: Churches in Saudi Arabia?
in response to reader comment: Read History

You gave me what you know of your history and I told you what I know of mine.

But why do you reject the idea that the truth is somwhere in between both?

YOu surely could see that human nature (in general) always writes from some point of perspective.

Therefore neither your nor mine is completelly accurate.(always seen from their side)

When in a yes/no situation people can quarrel like children or seek like a good parent what is the truth.

I'm trying to be the good parent and after being finally abel to hear both sides, I have to guess, seek and hopefully find the possible truths. I'm not jumping form 1 side to an other.. I'm just offering to you possible situation/events that could explain the 1 side view of each as much correct as possible.

Not trying to say your history or mine is false (if we ever could really find out, btw) So I'm taking a different path and seeking a truth that could explain both's explanations.


(No human knows all, why are so many trying so hard to convince others they do??)
