The Holy spirit (or Holy Ghost) is the third part of the Trinity.

Which is a pretty strange thing - because the idea of the Christian god is supposed to be monotheistic. From whence then this three part entity? Four if you count the virgin Mary.

As usual, answers are long complicated and incomprehensible. Failure to understand this complexity generate two differing responses depending on which type of Christian you are talking to:

  • Full agreement that the idea is preposterous.


  • A patronizing suggestion that one spend 20 years getting indoctrinated.

You pays your money and takes your chance.
