I am not a biblical scholar. I can't even say I've read much of the Bible since it's so boring and illogical. But with what I have read and have picked up from others who quote it in different areas I have been in I noticed something wild. I never even thought about it until one of my favorite comedians, Lewis Black, made mention of it. Did you notice the fundemental change in the man-in-the-sky between the Old and New Testaments? It's like night and day! In the Old Testament he was (as Black said) "out of control!" He killed and burned, destroyed or got people to do it and messed with humans all over the place! Then, in the New Testament, it seems that he mellowed out, alot. Sending down angels to chat with someone or making the sky rumble after humans killed his son was about all he seemed to have the energy to do. So I ask you, Is this a different God or did he finally get a medication that worked?

Judaism isn't necessarily a monotheistic religion, it's something no body tends to acknowledge.
Christianity has gotten quite skewed from its origins, originally each local church having their own stories or books on Christianity bickering amongst themselves about who has the "right" idea, to having the stories selectively combined into a single bible.
And they think its written by god, they are so silly.

Lewis Black is one of my favorite comedians too. He is quite awesome.

It took god a while to figure out that he could fool more people if he was pretended to be nice to them. The fear thing didn't work with most when it came to collecting money, so he opted for the buddy-buddy scheme....

I think you're right Paul - must have got his meds checked.

"or did he finally get a medication that worked?" Hilarious ending.
