    I would have preferred if they had dispensed with all the 'thou shalt' nonsense.

    Yep, looks like another group whose world view has it wanting to call
    the shots as for the rest of mankind, putting itself up as the beacon
    of truth for man. I guess it isn't so amazing that it has an us vs them
    theme in it too.

    In fairness, they point out in large text that these are "suggestions" rather than commandments.

    Not to mention the fact I didn't notice the part where you are threatened with eternal damnation for not playing along.

    Yeah, it would be SUCH a shame if humans used the brains they evolved with rather than following the rantings of madmen who convince weak minded people they got their rantings from a god.
    I feel sorry for your insane god and especially sorry for your closed mind.

    Could you please locate for me the supposed "excellent point"? Or maybe you think they're all excellent points. In which case, as I might have implied, I disagree with you.

    I'm overly concern about any man or woman telling me I have to
    worry about eternal damnation; however, if the source is God that
    takes on a whole new twist to the threat now doesn't it?
