  1. Wow. Unbelievable! and yet believable at the same time… We should definitely cherish our right to write.. I feel that more of us here in America should take advantage of this! Even if you feel like you have nothing to say or like others don’t care, say it anyway.

    • I shouldn’t be blogging this as it is – I live in an Islamic country.

      When I read the way some US bloggers rip America apart I actually do despair – they have no idea what they have, they have no conception of what life is like in other countries.

  2. “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth,
    and the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon
    the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.”
    It’s an oral history, passed down, word of mouth, from father to son.
    From Adam to Seth, from Seth to Enos, from Enos to Caanan, for 40 generations
    a growing, changing story, passed down, word of mouth, father to son.

    Till Moses finally gets it down on lambskin.
    But lambskins wear out, need to be copied.

    So you have a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy
    of an oral history passed down through 40 generations.

    From Hebrew it’s translated into Arabic. From Arabic into Greek.
    From Greek into Latin. From Latin into Russian, from Russian into German,
    from German into an Olde form of English that you could not read.
    Through 400 years of evolution of the English language to the book we have today.
    Which is:
    A translation of a translation of a translation of a translation of a translation
    of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy
    of an oral history passed down through 40 generations.

    You can’t put a grocery list through that many copies, translations and re-tellings
    and not get some big changes in the dinner menu when the kids make it back from Superfresh.

    And yet people are killing each other over this written word.

    Here’s a tip.

    If you’re killing someone in the name of God…
    you might be missing the message.
