Does Thee Believe in France?

June 9, 2012

A skeptical young collegian confronted an old Quaker with the statement that he did not believe in the Bible. Said the Quaker;

“Does thee believe in France?”

“Yes, for though I have not seen it I have seen others that have; besides, there is plenty of corroborative proof that such a country does exist.”

“Then thee will not believe anything thee or others has not seen.”

“No, to be sure I won’t.”

“Did thee ever see thy own brains?”


“Ever see anybody that did?”


“Does thee believe thee has any?”
