Gimme old time religion…

Good morning, Netizens...


With the morning news that Oops!! the Reverend Harold Camping, who predicted the end of it all on May 21, he now states that his calendar got screwed up and the date of the Rapture will fall on October 21, instead. This brings me back to the vision(s) we have of Biblical statements, mostly relating to the Old Testament in the case of David Horsey, cartoonist, for example.


Parts of the Old Testament, which includes the Pentateuch, is a favorite source of theology for some old-time religious beliefs, some of which David Horsey has cited in this cartoon. Far be it from me to wade into the middle of the dialogue between Biblical scholars! However, as David Horsey's excellent cartoon suggests, the Old Testament has some pretty interesting restrictions upon modern-day living.


Can you imagine what would happen if we had to actually had to live with the statements contained in the Old Testament? Say, come to think of it, we could all have multiple wives, now couldn't we? We could even behead those in advertising so regularly lie to us. I could easily come up with more sweeping changes that would come about if we adhered 100% with the restrictions in the Old Testament. Say, couldn't we have fun?


Of course, your beliefs and decisions may differ from this vision. Nonetheless, it is an interesting thought.
