You wasted a post to tell me that honor your parents was probably around longer than the torah? And you accuse ME of being trite?@ FRIJOLES:
I laughed to read you type that some God revealed this trite and age-old commandment of respecting parentgs to Moses that existed tens of thousands of years before Moses was born. LMAO.
My intention is to show that Moses' teachings are neither unique nor profound. He simply repeated what every parent tells its kid - that parents should be respected.
This ordinary teaching is as old as thinking humanity
I wonder what value system Moses had considering the fact that this demon-worshipping asura was a mass murderer and a human sacrificing pervert.
Read yourself sometime.
And while you are at it, try following the conversation, and maybe understanding WHY I cited that commandment (or any commandment).
