    What's weird about a person talking to their ass?

  • God_Delusion

    "Jehovah opened the mouth of the ass and she said to Balaam: "What have I done to you that you have beaten me three times? I not your She-ass that you have ridden on all your life long until this day?"

    I'm sure I've heard this line in a porn film..

    This is nothing more than another stock example of where God has done something for us once upon a time. I noticed that it was in favor, not of the people, but of God Himself (as is everything else God ever does). I believe that someone merely hallucinated the donkey talking, and reported it as if the donkey did talk (and God saw fit to use it as a stock example of His doing things for mankind, so He won't have to do anything for us now).

    I think that there was more mental illness in the people who's stories ended up in that 'history' than has perviously been acknowledged... that and drug and alcohol adiction...

    Another question to ponder is "what is the moral to that story?"

    There is another Bible story where a guy is walking around and meets an angel. The angel tells him to remove his shoes because he is standing on holy ground. So the guy removes his shoes. End of story. Not only that, but that bit was stuck in the middle of passages and it was totally out of context with the surrounding subject!

    What was that story all about?

    When you read the account, it sounds like a made up PETA commercial, only without the naked girl.

    But Donkeys have many useful purposes as well.....

    "Legend has it that the cross on the donkey’s shoulders comes from the shadow of Christ’s crucifixion, placing the donkey at the foot of the cross. It was once believed that hair cut from this cross and hung from a child’s neck in a bag would prevent fits and convulsions." Has anyone tried this remedy? You can PM me if it works.

    I've always viewed Balaam as some senile old man with no real clue as to what was going on. Similar to the GB of today.

    Little known fact: Did you know that half the GB don't recognize themselves when they look into the mirror each morning. "Who are you?! Get out of my bathroom!! I'm calling the cops if you don't leave!"

    Balaam thought he was dealing with a smart ass so Balaam beat his ass.
