MirageRe: Did you read my anti-rationalist post below ...Sun Jan 22, 2012 07:43184.108.40.206Have read it several times and opened the wiki an awful lot.
Catholic theology has always impressed me. I can see why Jews like to marry Catholics. Torah study impressed me also when I had the honor to participate as a guest. Boths faiths are *serious* about this stuff. I am, too, in my own way, but I am a child, not a scholar. I doubt I would survive long among scholars.
I think in these matters I would probably be best described as an eclectic, but that is probably due to my serious lack of education. There is so much to learn! I still generally start by trying to work things out for myself and then I start researching to see whether I change my mind. I'm fairly open to changing my mind, but I possess enough hubris that I am not afraid to simply reject the viewpoint of far greater minds than my own if I disagree instinctively. I am aware of this, and that it is dangerous. I wrestle with it sometimes, but probably not enough. I was never very good at joining things. It took me many years to find a church I felt comfortable joining, but on the other hand I have really enjoyed most religious services I have attended, both Christian ones and non-Christian ones. Went to a Catholic Mass once, before I was even baptized. Sat in the back since I wasn't. Came out floating.
