Whereas Cleopatra lived roughly 2000 years ago, most of the major Egyptian pyramids were built from 2600 - 1800 BCE. Technically, while Cleopatra is closer to us, it's not by a very large margin. I don't recall saying it was a huge margin. True, but it takes away from your point. Cleopatra is, in f...

... One illustration I like to use to begin to show the sheer depth of history is to point out that Cleopatra is closer in history to us than she is to the people who built the pyramids... Very, very much of even the recorded portions of this history contains accounts of people mated to cousins and...

I think it bears remembering that in our western culture, incest laws are derived from the bible, specifically Leviticus (who was a bit of an asshole)... Leviticus wasn't a specific person, it was a group. Liber Leviticus - either "from the Levites" or "of the Levites." I can't argue, though - ther...

And nearly every culture has a taboo against eating some particular animal... My point is, taboos don't mean anything. Some turn out to make sense, and other don't. A lot of people forget about taboos that have turned out to have no rationale behind them. I think your point would be more valid if n...

I just want to know why the CIA is trying re-write Buffy lyrics... That user and I probably have a lot in common. We're both government employees, sometimes bored at work, who like to browse and edit Wikipedia on the job. Sometimes, there's no conspiracy. Sometimes I'm just bored at work. <grin>

Then it can be an introduction into edgeplay.

I confess while the concept of edgeplay doesn't particularly blow my skirt up, I'd like to try it at least once... just so I'd know what it was like.

The fact is, the religious nuts are right. They are the true christians/muslims/etc. Or atleast, much closer to the ideal than the religious moderates who conveniently gloss over every part of their chosen holy book that doesn't feel good to them. Aren't you doing the same thing in reverse? You're ...
