Newsflash #1 : Not everyone is interested in the same things.
Newsflash #2 : Not everyone is interested in that which interests you.
Newsflash #3 : YOU do not dictate anything here.
Newsflash #4 : Many people ARE interested in the history of what WAS important in this culture, and still is.

How old are you. Like 5 ?
Your anti-intellectualism is pathetic, but very common. Many of my threads have literally tens of thousands of hits, proving at least a few are interested in them. How many hits do your posts get for the threads you have started ? I have the data for mine. Care to compare them ?

In short, GO FUCK YOURSELF.

Wow. Bit of an over-reaction there.

Yeah, I found the text just a bit too long. You had my interest, and then it waned. I kept finding myself disagreeing with you. For example, why should we believe that Moses either didn't actually smash the tablets or was a fool? It sounds like a false dichotomy. The text makes it clear that he did it in anger (as a tantrum). After reading this bit you wrote towards Janus, can you seriously not sympathize with Moses? Or do you believe that only fools lose their composure?
Ah yes. More unsolicited advice from Starcrash, the wise patronizing adviser to anyone who happens to cross his path. I could care less how you found it. I write for guests, who find my post by internet searches. The one on Islam has 10,000 hits. If you don't like it, don't read it. Moses never existed. Of course the text says he did it in anger, how else would they portray it happening. The point is, he DID it at all. BTW, I did not "lose my composure". Every word I wrote, I wrote quite coolly, and would do exactly the same thing, anytime, to anyone who thinks they can thell me what to post or not post. But thanks dad. When I need advice, I'll be sure and ask.

Well, I was going to save this one, but now I think it's time:

EDIT: Not directed at any one person, but it's a lesson we could all use, and it's done humourously.

Hey Bucky, how often did the average first century Jewish peasant, let's say in Galilee, get to have the scripture read (or sung?) to him? In a synagogue? Could they quote scripture?

Yet another appeal to popularity in an attempt to bolster yourself as an authority, and then another repetition of the hypocritical idea that advice should only come from those you ask for it (hypocritical because your reply is, as most posts are, advice).

Look at this way... if you would not approve of someone else doing something that you're doing, then you've set up a double-standard. If you defend that double-standard, you're rationalizing and self-justifying. But I've come to expect this of you. I like the fact that you study, but I wish you'd put the effort into learning rational behavior. I strongly suggest the book Mistakes Were Made, But Not By Me. Or maybe you don't care for my advice and recommendations, in which case, why should I give a shit about yours?

My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.

Hey, look what else came from the Temple of Dagon.
Looks like the bishops wear open fish mouths straight from Babylon.
