Once upon a time I worked in a factory to pay for my CS degree. I was promoted several times into engineering and then into engineering management. To switch back to my goal of a computer programming became expensive - upper end engineering salary vs mid level programmer. So I wrote code to automate engineering processes ("Expert System" if you will). Then one day I made an executive decision and made the career change and have been happier but poorer since.

"...too obviously influenced by theology." Sounds like you're challenging the inerrantcy of the gospel.

comment Where does the Catholic church stand on governments supporting foreign groups or other governments that abuse human rights?
@DJClayworth I didn't know of such a term, thanks for the education. With that said, I didn't intend to Godwin the question. It was just the first that poped into my head.

comment Upside down cross in light of Sola scriptura
I'm just wondering how this question is -4. If it's in the bible or not shouldn't make it a -4.

You may want to scope this down a bit. There are just too many examples and possible answers. For example, maybe "How did the Catholic church support the Nazi party in Germany?" Otherwise, you can just search new.google.com for Catholicism and see what you come up with.

comment What caused people in Jerusalem to change so much from “Palm entrance” to crucifixion day
Jesus wasn't the first to claim to be the messiah and he wasn't the first to receive a special enterence.

comment Upside down cross in light of Sola scriptura
Why so many -1 with no explanation? Is it diffult to explain how Christians are to understand the "upside down cross"? All I want to know is, if a Christian sees an "upside down" cross, should he bow in verneration to St. Peter or run due to evil? And for those who say that it's extra Biblical, what happned to "Sola scriptura"?

comment According to the Protestant faith, was God grieved when He cast Satan out of Heaven?
Lucifer (Cherub) and Satan (Seraph) are different entities However, that doesn't really change your question much. Link1 Link2

comment Why did Jesus turn water into wine?
Interesting point since wine was drank because it was "cleaner" than the water. I wonder why he didn't turn it into Mountain Dew.

I'm not sure if the symbolism is clear at all. I mean, what if they're just St. Peter worshipers? (rhetorical question)

comment What does this Catholic symbol mean?
The hole is quite interesting, could you get a closer image of it (to possibly determine how it was made)?
