I believe it was a pagan fertility potion of some sort. The reasoning was, as I imagine,if you distilled some elements that are emblematic of fecundity - Mother's milk, any kind of baby - you could pour it on your crops and have a bountiful harvest. The heart of this Commandment is a ban on magic but to highlight this practice in particular and elevate it to The Tenth Commandment seems silly in retrospect. I don't even think the Jews who observe Kashrut have any idea about its origins.
Hey my brother went there and still loves the football program. We've moved on!
My baby's birthday is Sunday, another reason for me to feel old
I certainly was not clear in why I commented as I did.
Brothers Grimm, Aesop and so many others have useful stories to tell.
What war on cops? Miss me with that bullshit, Obama made statements a multitude of people agreed with and conservatives took it as an attack, let go of the pearls. You blame all Democrats for Seattle, should I blame all conservatives for Charlottesville?
By contradiction, I don't mean simply contradictions in the Bible, for example, but a logical contradiction.
Actually, with the right equipment you can see the wind. Further, we can FEEL the wind and HEAR the wind. Wind can be directly measured and quantified.

Hey, whatever I offended you with, I'm sorry. This is just fun and games for me and I don't take insults from strangers very seriously, and I guess I assume others are the same way. So I was surely shooting from the hip, just think it's ridiculous and funny for evolutionists to get defensive every time the name of the guy who invented the idea is mentioned. The fact that evolutionists don't want to be associated with Charles Darwin kind of says it all, I think. I'm proud of Copernicus and Galileo and Newton and Faraday and all the other Christian scientists. You can talk about Newtonian physics all day and I won't get pissy.
Really you know the history of it? All of it? I doubt it. If you did you would not believe it.
Atheists and LGBT's and Pagans are not screaming for the deaths of Christians like Christians are screaming for our deaths. I often wonder, taking a verse out of the bible, how Christians would like to have done unto them, as they want to do unto others?
They would not have been willing to die, if He had not risen.
You?re not an American so stop lying about it...
I thought the left's favorite sin was being gay? I was taught to hate the sin love the sinner
Get real. First prove you should even be taken seriously, that there is any such person as "Pope Hilarius II"?
