IGNORANT QUOTE BY CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS FOLLOWED BY COMMENTS FROM JOEL:

"Knowing that we are primates, I think, is a fascinating discovery, and a very interesting and rather cheering one."

- Christopher Hitchens

JOEL - Really?

Structurally, there exists quite a great chasm between man and primate with the most symbolic feature of the superiority of the former over the latter being that man always walks upright and never on his fours. Besides, the lower animals rarely if at all sleep on their backs, while, with the human species, sleeping on the back is a favorite posture of resting. Even if there exists a mere 1.5 % genetic divide between the two species which refers to differences in anatomical characteristics more than anything else, yet the functional differences between man and primates are millions of degrees apart. Genes tell us nothing about emotional or psychological or personality traits. Functionally, the gap between man and primate is toooo vast to comprehend.

So, Hitchens, your view is silly and reflects the stark ignorance of the scientific method of investigation that you lean upon. The fact that you take delight in being associated with lower life forms indicates your rather undeveloped mental faculties.

Expected response from a crass materialist whose belief about existence begins and ends with blind forces and insentience.

That doesn't take away from the fact that David was an evil man like Abraham, Moses, Elijah and the other biblical perverts who were worshipers of a demonic power, El or YHVH.
The so-called Jewish messiah is supposed to be a descendant of a barbarian and a satanist (David)!
LOL
But that wasnt what you said.

You criticized him for the quality of his "divine revelations": i.e. you criticized his prophetic ability. Which is not only a lack of basic familiarity with Jewish text, but, given the figure he was, a lack of familiarity with worldwide literature, history, and culture.

Dont try to change the goalposts. We dont put up with that sht here.

LOL. Looks like many in the comments section of that article agree with my assessment. Check it out if you want to understand how bad the author mangled his "facts".
The quality of the articles on Salon have degraded over time, but the comments are usually spot on. Usually the articles have nothing to do with the titles - i.e. click bait - but they can be interesting none-the-less.

But yet nearly 98% of your posts relate back to that idea.

Not so easy depending on the local geology. A certain popular in cemetery in Northern NJ comes to mind, smack in the central valley underlain with sand, gravel, and clay deposits. Not a stone for miles.

No, I'd qualified the usage of the word "genes" on several occasions by saying that the outer manifestation is chemical (that science knows about) that codes for physical traits, while the subtler dimensions/subtler fields of information in terms of conscious-energy that underlie the chemical units are related to personality traits.

If that is true why do you pine here day and night about bad genetics?

Cruel. Joel can start a business of selling stones near the gate! It would be therapeutic.

I'll rather enter the business of selling my handsome body to anyone who can afford me for an hour or if they prefer for a night than sell stones.

He would last 10 seconds. Everything at this cemetery is unionized. Thugs would be a good description of the workers. God help you if you try to help them, even symbolically, lower the casket into the grave, or even ask them to accommodate any tradition that deviates from their script.

The whole scene amazes me with all the discourtesies, but then again, there was a reason the Sopranos took place in NJ.(And yet this place is one of the most popular Jewish cemeteries in the NYC metro area).

At least you would be making people happy, unlike under your normal scrooge like behavior.

You could be the Indian Deuce Bigelow.

By the way. You need to look up the definition of a gigolo.
