"Many scholars such as Jerome visited the school of Alexandria to exchange ideas and to communicate directly with its scholars. The scope of this school was not limited to theological subjects; science, mathematics and humanities were also taught there. The question-and-answer method of commentary began there, and 15 centuries before Braille, wood-carving techniques were in use there by blind scholars to read and write."

This digital age allows you to sit and click and retrieve information that is beyond belief even a few decades ago.

But you have to read it. You have to understand it, and you have to have the right perspective. Which means toss out that indoctrination you have been getting from a few sources.

Wiki is a great place to get an overview. You can go for days clicking on related links from one subject. Sit down for a while one night and start investigating religion with fresh eyes. Get an overview and think for yourself.

So many on here are pushed by the herd, and those aren't the few theists or deists on here.

So, did you get your drug lord off the hook in Mexico?

Bet he has to discount his dope to sell enough to pay you.

Come on man, that's not why I was in Mexico.

We had a strategy meeting for the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court arguments in the DOMA and California same-sex marriage cases.

And some good food and margaritas to relax with.

Sadly, for you the "right perspective" is to buy anything that has no supporting evidence and deny anything that has even a small amount of verifiable evidence.

Wouldn't you say they there are some gays out there that are only pretending? Now that the gays are out, it's starting to feel like being gay has become more of a trend than an orientation.

Thoughts?
Just when I thought you couldn't be more stupid...

<quoted text>Yes, millions.

[QUOTE]Slavery can be in different forms. Conscription of tradesmen for public works, which at the time the Pharaoh was the public, would be considered slavery by those tradesmen. They had to leave home and probably didn't get the highest wages they could have."

The problem with white-washing slavery in this case is that the slavery in this case would have to be bad enough to morally justify the atrocities that were purportedly committed by Yahweh against the Egyptians. Atrocities that conspicuously lack any
corroborating evidence.

[QUOTE]There are lots of things that happened and got buried and you will never find."

Even if you go specifically to look, based on information provided by the Bible? Because many people have.

[QUOTE]
Surviving records are scarce from most any age, including just a few hundred years ago."

And yet there are no records at all of the various plagues, nor any mention by other cultures of these millions of homeless Hebrews wandering through their lands. You'd think that would rate some kind of mention.
I caught about 20 minutes of The Bible on the history channel last night.

Just in time for the crossing of the Red Sea.

"Holy crap" is an appropriate term.

They must have had at least a $1000 budget.

<quoted text>Homosexuality is different in Japan - but now the Western sexual identities are moving here powerfully. Whereas before many MSM (men who have sex with men) told me "I'm not a homosexual, I just want to have sex with men" a lot of them are embracing it. I think they're tired of living hidden lives - but I'm no longer doing that kind of research, so I don't really keep tabs on the people anymore. Some must still claim not to be homosexuals (and the identity markers that they perceive going along with that).

Met my first lesbian couple here a few months back! One was obviously gay, the other apparently straight, going by stereotypes. Well, they broke up and the straightish one is straight, with a bf. She wants to marry a man, have kids. The other one doesn't.

People are so strange and interesting :)
There's a woman I used to work with who has gone from straight to gay and back to straight.

She is, in general, a very strange person and somewhat socially awkward. She's had drug problems and financial troubles and tends to be a compulsive liar.

She tends to dress very masculine and her mannerisms are kind of ambiguous-definitely no feminine, but not really masculine either.

I don't think she honestly knows WHAT she is.
