I'm No Expert

I will begin by stating that my posts here are likely to become less frequent though I shall endeavor to post something once a week.  Today I wanted to discuss my desire to attain more knowledge of some subjects before I post my opinions on them.  It seems everyone has an opinion and there are many great articles written by many different bloggers on the web.  Having an advanced degree helps though it is not necessary.  I will give one example of what I am referring to.  It is in the area of Biblical Criticism.  While I have read several versions of the Bible as well as books on the Bible and Biblical Criticism over my lifetime, I believe that I should limit what I say in regards to that subject.  Reason being there are obviously more learned people who post online in that subject area and I believe that they contribute much more than what I usually can.  There are plenty of resources for atheists to reference online when it comes to the Bible.  The Skeptic's Annotated Bible( is one great resource as is  The Freethought and Rationalism Discussion board( is another.

I decided this after realizing that there are those who set themselves up as experts pontificating to everyone else what they think.  I don't want to be one of those.
