Hm . . . I'm assuming it has something to do with immunity. Is it found in humans?
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

This is a very confusing topic for me but I'll keep trying. Does it have to do with a virus?

I think I'm getting closer here. As I understand it (I could be wrong, though), an antigen is anything that can trigger an immune response.

Is it an allergen?

Is it an immunogen?
Is it a fungus?
Am I ever going to figure this out in a million years?
(Sorry for my pessimism, but I really don't know much about immunology.)

#6 question
Answer: Yes. No. Depends.
Comment: The "yes" answer leads you to the correct pathway. You don't have to take a million years, might be a hundred, or even a year, or just one night! :)
