Except their faith, and the other cultures around them, all placed a heavy emphasis on learning. To be a Rabbi was to be something special. Reading was tied up in that. Your stance that it doesn't matter if you learn to read if all you're going to get is simple myth is a little skewed, don't you think? Education is it's own reward. Thanx. Since evolution and moral degree are mutually exclusive, you are clearly in error. Which God? Adonis?

'Back to Genesis' madness
It explains that you're ignorant beyond redemption! <G> LOL! Nope. But whales and manatees don't stand upright to breathe, and they need to breathe just as much as we do. A birth defect, Andrew? I don't have an up-turned nose. Do you get snot in your eyes every time you sneeze? such as? Jezzus, another fucking birth defect! Man, did your mom or dad work at a Uranium plant or something? Hint: my fingers aren't webbed, even

Hello
Am I the only one that hoped that Sally Ryde got a little action when she went up on the shuttle? I mean, it's the chance for a first in a weightless environment, and with a last name like that Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

You just feel comfortable saying that because he's on the other side of the planet from you, and can't get at you. <G> Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

Well, Marty's just as free to correct others as well. He takes it good naturedly, as do any of us when shown to be correct, where the survival of our ego isn't tied to the stuff we've been taught elsewhere. In other words, those who enjoy learning don't bitch about being corrected. IF they are corrected. <G> And he DID say that he's been having some vision problems lately Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

c/Your/You're You're obviously projecting. c/Amuses/It amuses Locked in your infantile fantasies for me sexually, you wish. Tell me, have you asked John yet why he's trying to get your new BBS shut down from Skeptic? Speaking of kissing ass: have you had him explain his statement regarding the moderator of this echo's making pornography available to children, or even having kiddie porn? <cue Beavis imitation> Welcome back, Beavis. I see you still have no thought in your head. Ennyn Opletal

Ah, the idiot wants you to prove a negative! What a dunce. I see no true theory advanced. Did I miss something? Untrue. Do you wish to introduce him to Brawly, or should I? Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith

the While I am not above turning down a job I need because of my sex, I happen to think that the current rules and regs pertaining to the "affirmative action" are just plain outdated. IMHO, the laws should be changed to penalize any discrimination without carrying quotas (which can do more harm than good now). For some time my Dad was in charge of hiring for a company. The company routinely got questioned as to the lack of minorities

Not the ones with the big pictures in them, like he likes. Granted, what I said was oxymoronic <G> <BEG> It's worth a try, anyway. Helping \/tian To Stop /\tortion Richard Smith
