    > that knowledge with as many

    people as I can. When someone

    > simply remind

    them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to
    > be an abomination... End of debate.
    >
    > I do need

    some advice from you, however, regarding some other
    > elements of God\'s Laws and how to follow them...

    > 1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both
    > male and female, provided they are

    This one was circulating for years as a letter that was sent to Dr. Laura.

    I think we should bring back stoning. It\'s fun for the whole family and sets an example for

    everyone... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] Nothing like the impact of a hard stone to set a

    person straight...hmmm, this makes me want to do a top 5 list...

    Top 5 Things We Should Bring Back from the year

    0
    5. Stoning...too bad only those who have committed no sins must cast the first one...
    4. Virgin Births...what an

    immaculate concept...ion [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
    3. Burning Bushes...nothing like a

    spontaneous bonfire to spice up a pep-rally...
    2. Random Miracles...the occasional raising of the dead, blind

    receiving sight, and handicapped restored to full-capacity would really boost morale on earth.
    1. Prophets...we

    need more people speaking of the future and reinstating the morals of society---besides the usual people: the

    insane, the president, and Gary Coleman (hey, the man ran for governor)...

    Hahahahhha! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Great post!! I promise neither

    Bush nor Dr. Laura allowed themselves to fully mentally process that letter.

    I always talk to fundamentalists

    about Leviticus and Numbers. Deuteronomy and Exodus have some real jewels too, as do some of the peripheral books of

    the New testament (e.g., letters of Paul). Those are not even the most extreme things, though they were good

    examples. There is lots of the authors\' saying that raping, pillaging and plundering in the name of God is OK,

    just like in the Koran.

    It\'s all the same. Nobody gets the moral high ground, unfortunately, at least not

    Jews, Christians or Muslims. Even the Ba\'Hai (sp?) religion (which claims to value all faiths and

    \'prophets\' equally) has blatant illusions of destiny to rule the world.

    Monkeys, all of us! Maybe

    formal religions, as they stand, will soon be seen as having outlived their usefulness, (I\'m not saying they are

    currently literally useless, BTW, but it is starting to look more that way, given recent world events.) and we\'ll

    finally be faced with taking responsibility for our spirituality and beliefs. Or maybe idiocy will continue to rule

    everywhere. F_uck!

    Is human nature just whatever it is, or do we have the potential to recreate ourselves?

    The current-run movie, \"What the \'Bleep\' do We Know?\", which is based on findings of quantum physics and

    neuropsychology, offered a great perspective on this question, suggesting that the former view is essentially

    Newtonian. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

    If

    "What the Bleep" isn't being shown near you, yo can talk to your local independent theater about the massive

    interest everywhere the film has been shown, as posted on that site! Give them the url. Everybody can relate to

    making money. A big Indy theater in Portland showed it constantly for months and did strong, steady business. The

    film is an experience.
