May 22, 2008

Ran into this wonderful gem while busily debunking the good old “The Ten Commandments are the source of western laws and morales” BS.

“If a physician make a large incision with the operating knife, and kill him, or open a tumor with the operating knife, and cut out the eye, his hands shall be cut off.” – The Code of Hammurabi, 1760 BC.

Well, what can I say? At least today we’re figurative about the arm and leg.
