Hello! Big Grin

I find on most forums that people do not appreciate the dredging up of 'Old' threads (Though various forums have different views on 'Old') but much prefer people to create new threads about the topics that interest them.

That being said, perhaps you would like to start a new thread and engage in conversation?

Much cheers to all.

Just one more thing the "Good Book" got wrong. Hog is some goddamned good eating.

Well the guy who never even met Jesus in the stories says it's okay... even though that has no barring knowing much about who Jesus if anyone and what he thought about it... regardless of that, the random guy who had a vision says it's okay... so it's okay duh!

Jews don't eat pork.

"God" telling "Peter" (a Jew) to eat pork was Christianity's attempt to badmouth Jewish practices.

The new religion (Christianity, invented by Romans) was designed to undermine the old (Judaism) because many Jews weren't paying their taxes or obeying Roman law.

I'm usually Mr Nice Guy, but tough shit. First of all, I don't know of any forums that get giddy over a 3-year-old necro thread.

Secondly, the site name itself admits it's a lame excuse. OK, I'll give you this one because you didn't claim it made sense.

No, wait, then you say "well-thought" for a site called lamesteverexcuse.org.

Self-proclaimed atheists? What does that even mean? Nothing, that's what.

Delete your account. Did you say anything after that except the equivalent of "I posted and now you're big poopyheads."

A better response would have been "Oops, didn't mean to pull a Lazarus."

Your link doesn't work.

Perhaps you could summarise.
