How about that?

26 February 2014, 07:18

How about that?

Here’s a thought - these words:

“When you consider that god could have commanded anything he wanted – anything! – the [ten] commandments have got to rank as one of the great missed opportunities of all time.

How different history would have been had he clearly and unmistakably forbidden war,  tyranny, taking over other peoples countries, slavery, exploitation of workers, cruelty to children, wife-beating, stoning, treating women – or anyone – as chattel or inferior beings.”   - Katha Pollitt.

Imagine that!

Or going a step further,  how different if this was a world of Intelligently Designed people who were created devoid of greed, malice, hatred, avarice, jealousy or cruelty.    There would have been no need for commandments.
