The End of Josephus
« on: May 14, 2012, 02:29:45 PM »
I wasn't truly sure where to put this, but it was too good not to share.   If you're like me, and tired of Josephus:

"But to us, there is but one god, plus or minus one."  - 1 Corinthians 8:6+/-2

It's true. She's been requesting pictures of mine on and off for the better part of a year. I keep playing hard to get though. She at least owes me dinner first. I'm not some cheap tramp.

I see no junk. I see a leaf. And not even a very big leaf. Hercules. Puny god. But at least he ain't wearing a dress like some so-called gods I could mention....:P
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

these aren't gods but they are either swinging some serious pipe or have geoducks attached in an uncomfortable place.

I believe it was originally an attempt to hide the naughty bits.  But it ends up more like this: http://waynesword.palomar.edu/psgourd1.htm   may not be safe for work.
