Ya see, actually there were 15 commandments.





Actually there are 628 legal prescriptions.
In the biggest "pick and choose" game in history, you only know about 10.
They probably got them from the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

Thanks for the link, I heard this “Book of the Dead” before and only now saw the details.

Excluding the “supernatural laws”: the Hebrew Decalogue is more concise and coherent.

Interesting to note:

The Egyptians seems to cover “economic sabotage”:
“I have not stopped (the flow of) water in its seasons; I have not built a dam against flowing water.”

Although the Egyptians’ is missing the Hebrews’ “one day holiday in a week” and “honor your father and mother”.

well, granted there could be many more then 10 commandments, but that would be missing the point of the video.There are so many variations on what happened, it would be impossible to narrow them down to a single idea, but its not about the stolidity of the commandments, its alot more about the moral outlook of them, and the vanity of god if he did write the0.m

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

We learn from history.

Look how fundamental is the Hebrew Decalogue (excluding the “supernatural law” no.1-4) and “desires of the heart" no. 10.

Honour thy father and thy mother
 Start of life, gratefulness/ life’s continuity
Thou shalt not kill
 Dignity of human life
Thou shalt not commit adultery
 Family is the basic unit of society, cohesion
Thou shalt not steal
 Cohesion in the community
Thou shalt not bear false witness
 Cohesion in day to day activity, commerce

Sure, people can make fun of it, but our bias should not stop us from learning from history.

Talk about efficiency
