Great question! I'll be back with my initial response later in the day I've got a little sermon prep to do. As a preview I can almost assure folks NYD will not be satisfied and the fundamentalists on the board will be ticked off with me. But seriously I think this is a question those outside the faith have a right to have answered and fundamentalists need to answer in an intellectually satisfying way.
However, not shaving has a certain appeal frankly. :-)
