Roleplayers Wanted!
I knew I was in the wrong profession! HA HA

And I rant again (in the comments), this time on A's discussion of the numbers & codes.

I don't understand your rant. You mean that there is a 2000 year old conspiracy to raise a mere rabbi to divinity? What makes a conspiracy different from religion?

Also, what crime do you think Paul committed? As you said, Jews didn't consider him divine, but Paul did. Paul, like lots of people, developed his beliefs among like-minded people. What am I supposed to be outraged about?

First, it was fun to hop in on Andrew's Bible spin w/conspiracies & #'s.

What makes a conspiracy different from religion? My guess is intent, although many religions are indistinguishable from the conspiracies driving them forward.

I think Paul hi-jacked a profound healing spiritual practice, repackaged it without necessary background materials, and succeeded in marketing his revised belief system into the most violent martial empirial society ever on the Earth. Not a crime per se, but doubtfully a service to humanity.

What should you be outraged about? That's for you to decide.
For me, I'm outraged at radioactive weaponry used on civilians in modern American war, the USA's growing oppressive empire, and the wealthy upperclasses attempting to reclaim hard-earned civil liberties and rights of self-determination.

Bush and Cheney continue the tradition of warping the words of a peace-loving healer & prophet to justify cruelty and oppression.

If they just said, "We're greedy white men trying to embed white Euro-Christian power and world dominance more deeply into the top of the global hierarchy" at least they'd be honest.

Why NOT get outraged at this conspiracy of lies, misleading statements, and militarism?

Maybe it's cultural relativism: I was raised to question authority.
