> Unitarians don't believe in the Trinity, do they?

No, I'm pretty sure they don't. But from what I understand they don't identify as Christians either (at least, I don't think the Unitarian Universalists identify as Christian... there may be other Unitarians who do).

> The development of doctrine over time is absolutely fascinating. I would love to learn about what went on at the Council of Nicea. All the stuff about person and substance. From the tiny bit I do know it always seemed as if the most reasonable (rational) doctrines were deemed heretical (Arianism was one I think). In this respect it seems similar to Marxism. Perhaps it has something to do with what can be most easily defended in a public forum.

My father claims to be an Arian! I know what you mean...

Yeah, I like all that doctrinal development stuff. I remember getting very excited about the filioque clause a while ago. Does the Spirit proceed from the Father and the Son, or from the Father *through* the Son? ... I can imagine people might think I should get a life!
