    I dislike the way they have that ignorant but also certain (as in certainty) expression on their faces.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    I left out tons of things, I could go on with the ridiculous, nasty, outdated, because they had no clues, violent, rubbish that was written in that book.
    There were a bunch of things written back then, then some other religious much later on picked through them, tossed several and kept a few, that suited their version at the time and it's been claimed to be an instruction set ever since.

    Whatever happened to free speech. PJ
    Deafness.
    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Unfortunately we are in this Politically Correct era PJ. Anything that is said that folks don't agree with is either called bullying, offensive or hate speech.
