You know why it says that Frank??? It says that because the 'tradition' was transmitted by word of mouth AS WELL AS in the Scripture...They are the same thing...

This argument reminds me of the scene in A Few Good Men where Capt. Ross (Kevin Bacon) asks the Marine to find where in the handbook "Code Red" is found. He replies it isn't found in the handbook - Ross believes this concludes that "Code Reds" cannot exist. Then, Lt. Kaffee (Tom Cruise) asks the Marine where in the book instructions for eating are found. Again, the Marine replies it is not in the book. Incredulous, Kaffee asks if the Marine eats if it isn't in the book...

All of human learning, knowledge, and progress is based on traditions. It is almost as if God has built us to learn that way. Some traditions made solely by men have been wrong - luckily, God promised the Church that He would always be with us, so I'm not too worried about that. Thank you for your concern, Iscool.

Excellent comparison about “What is in the book.” and what is passed down by word of mouth.
