I don't think it dovetails me, it only magnifies what I SAID. The curious will always be interested in all things, as you and I, but generally people-en-mass will only go to what is relative to the subject of their tunnel vision.
Very valid point Elijah. I kind of get that view about people attending standard church services. They are not going to get it anywhere else.
Yes, I agree, most people attend their church denomination only to reinforce what they believe, not to receive a greater understanding of the scriptures.
By the time we're old enough to search what we're curious about we are usually conditioned not to be, only a few retains their childlike curiosity so libraries are often ignored.
Not true. I am 70 years old and I still have a very strong curiosity about many things. The Internet just makes it easier to satisfy.
It doesn't make that "not true" it just makes you one like me, at 72, who never lost your childlike curiosity. My curiosity is why I took John 3:8's "born again" wanderer's life requirement, I wanted to know if it is true and found that it is.
An interesting point in that we are curious about what we believe.
Elijah, the thing with the Internet is that it puts things at the fingertips making it easy to create interest in some things that people might not be normally interested in. I have researched many things that I would not have gone out of my way for.
