I find it to be very relevant to the important question that was asked by meAgain. My intent was to present an allegory that provokes the type of thought that can produce insight. This particular parable is used quite often in religious contexts. One can accept or reject the portrayal. I don't think it is meant to be so much dogmatic as it is suggestive.

Friends,
It is written here,[...a humorous parable meant to be a teaching tool..open to interpretation...relevant to the important question...provkes the type of thought that can produce insight...used..in religious contexts...as it is suggeative...].
I am unsure as to what those statements are wanting to mean. If interested members could email me answers to the following, then I could respond accordingly.
A. In [...a humoroust parable...],what does it mean in the story about the man drowning that it teaches as being humorous to you, if at all?
B. In,[...produce insight....] what is the insight that it produces, as you see it?
C. In [...it is suggestive...] suggestive of what, as you see it?
