loved that bit about the martians.

btw, since it seems this is the post to ask for definitions...what's a synod?

Synod

According to dictionary.com:
A council or an assembly of church officials or churches; an ecclesiastical council.

Basically, it's a way of saying we don't have a pope or one person acting as ultimate authority. Decisions are made in council, hopefully by building consensus. It's named that way to reflect how the denomination was set up, much like how a town can officially be a "village" or a state can be a "commonwealth." Hope that makes sense, welcome to the flist! :)

I always figured stuff like that is exactly WHY aliens haven't visited us (publicly, anyways). They pick up our broadcasts of stuff like "Independance Day" and think "We can't go there! They'll kill us and steal our stuff!"

Earth- the stereotypical ghetto of the galaxy.
