'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

Blah3 - The Ten Commandments vs. Hammurabi's Code...

This is a great little post and comment I found over at Blah3.com. check 'em out & bookmark 'em! --pseudolus

The Christianistas keep trying to claim the “Ten Commandments” are the basis of American Law, and keep trying to use this claim as the as the reason to place the “Ten Commandments” onto American Public Spaces, and into Public Law.

Well, here are The Ten Commandments As Per The Torah, and here is the The Code Of Hammurabi, written during the birth of Mesopotamia. These Laws were written and establised throughout the region, including in Egypt, long before the Dynasties of Egypt were even born; and even longer than that before “Moses brought the Commandments down from Mt. Sinai.” Hammurabi's Codes were the first Laws ever written unto Mankind... So, we compare and contrast:

The Ten Commandments, as Taken from the Torah, and Their Origins:

1.I am Adonai Your God. (Exodus)
2.Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. (Exodus)
3.You shall not take the Name of Adonai Your God in vain. (Exodus)
4.Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it separate. (Exodus)
5.Honor your father and your mother. (Hammurabi, Code #195 and others)
6.You shall not murder. (Hammurabi Code #210, 214, 229, 230 and others)
7.You shall not commit adultery. (Hammurabi, Code # 129-133 and several others)
8.You shall not steal. (Hammurabi, Codes #6, 8, 9, 21, 22 and many others)
9.You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. (Hammurabi, Code #1-3 and many others)
10.You Shall not covet anything that belongs to thy neighbor. (wife/property)... (Hammurabi, Codes #6,8,9,21,22, and others)

The "Christians" (Council of Nicea) combined Commandments #1 and #2, and seperated Commandment #10 into two seperate Commandments...

Hmmmm... It looks like the Christianistas are looking at only 40% of their beloved “Ten Commandments being handed down 'From God'.” Hammurabi seems to have proceeded them by several hundred to several thousand years... As the first four “Commandment Laws” are ultimately of “Religeous Establishment,” I can't see the First Amendment of the Constitution Of The United States Of America making room for it in any Public Place or Law.

So sorry, Christianistas. You lose. Put your sculptures on your Church Grounds, in your own front yard, say what you will in your own yard, and on your Church Grounds... Keep your bullshit OUT of Publically-Owned places... You're violating the Constitutional Law of America every time you try. You're only demonstrating your own insanity every time you try. Just stop it, and get over yourselves already... You're wrong. You'll never be correct. Quit while you're behind. The Law is against you.

Sheesh. Ok, grab a history book and follow along.

The United States system was an outgrowth of the English common law system, wich existed in England for many years. Back before the Norman invasion. To the time of the Germanic inflow into Britain. After the Christian Romans left, the Angles, Saxons, Jutes, etc. moved in and set up their system including basic rights, limited democracy, and so forth.

So, if you want the religious basis for what would eventually become the United States, I guess you're just going to accept the fact that it was a bunch of HEATHENS! Yup, just like the names of the days of the week, our nation is founded on the principles of followers of Odin, Thor, et al.

So, let's get back to our religious roots in this country. Grab a spear or an axe, pour a tall horn full of mead, get some friends, and go loot the local Christian churches.

Ha ha! You talk as if England was never Christianized after the Romans pulled out. You are right, though, that the American legal system descended from European culture (Judeo-Christian) and not Hammurabi's Code of Law.
