This conversation reminds me of the Proverb that says something like " answer a fool in his fooly and he will think he is wise, do not answer a fool in his and he will think he is wise".

Rav sha'el l'Rabbi Khiya, "Raba w'le[th e]na khamey l'Rabbi m'qabel `aloi Malkuth Shamaim?" Amar leh, "Kadh t'kh'meyneh yahev yadheh `al apoi ((Think about it: Perhaps kaf `al apoi! <!-- sConfusedatisfied: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/satisfied.gif" alt="Confusedatisfied:" title="Satisfied" /><!-- sConfusedatisfied: --> )), hu m'qabel `aloi `ol Malkuth Shamaim."

Have fun with that. <!-- sCool --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/cool1.gif" alt="Cool" title="Cool" /><!-- sCool -->
I am afraid I have wasted enuff of my precious time without chasing your rabbits.

It seems the only right thing left to do is bid you adoo and leave you to that which you prefer to believe. Any have a good one if your spirit will allow. Over and out <!-- s:listen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/listen.gif" alt=":listen:" title="Listen" /><!-- s:listen: -->
