Yesterday, an elderly Gentleman had several questions for me. The interview started with him asking me if I could help him with a certain Geological problem. When we found what he was looking for (or what I was looking for) he told me that I couldn't have found the right answer.
15,000 years ago? How could that be. Why G-d hadn't created the Earth by then. The Bible tells us so.
I told him that an Academic Library might be more his cup of tea, and he said no, that he'd be fine.

Same man. Would I now help him find out about a holiday called kwanz- AYE?
You mean Kwanzaa? OK, I thought so.
We found a webpage, and when he saw the Kinara - he said "SO, what is this? Some Black Jew Holiday? I assured him it wasn't. He seemed content with the real definition and such.
He thanked me and walked away.

The same little old man came over and put his hand on my shoulder, and leaned in with a question "Are you a Christian?"
I shook my head and said no, that I was Jewish. To which he replied...
"Well, you still did very well."
Moral of this blog: Oh, I'm so relieved.
