    The smaller the god, the greater the evils.

    Funny.....I went to a search engine(msn) and typed in "Yoga" . There were jillions of sites...ALL recommending Yoga in a positive light. Then....I typed in "Christianity and Yoga". Dubs aren't the only ones against this practice. Here's another fine example of Christianity at it's finest.

    wow, and i thought just the Jehovahs were backwards...


    Christians practicing yoga need to cease immediately, repent of it, and ask God's forgiveness.

    Yoga is not just exercise!

    OK, So I suppose it's natural to be skeptical of anyone who says they can do telepathy or turn invisible. I have yet to see anyone do that, however ... don't you just love it when they say stuff like this:

    The image of a yogi sleeping on a bed of nails or walking on hot coals may appear to be a hoax to some and a joke to others. But these are common occurrences in India, as is the practice of standing on one leg while staring directly at the sun for hours and breath control that allows a person to be buried in sand for long periods of time. In June 1995, The Times of India reported that a three-and-a-half-year-old girl lay in a trance as a car weighing more than 1,600 pounds [750 kg] was allowed to run over her abdomen. To the amazement of the crowd, when she awoke she was totally unharmed. The report added: "It was sheer yogic power."
    Without a doubt, no normal human is capable of performing any of these tasks.

    I think that's an awful big assumption. Since when did they become experts on what the human body can or can't do? I guess I've seen enough Discovery Channel type shows to believe the human body is capable of far more than what some consider "normal". There was this one show where this guy who had the front wheel of a 10 passenger Gulfstream (or LearJet) executive jet drive over his belly just to show off his muscle control. (Scale wise that would be about the same as the small car over the little girl.) While I don't remember the details, they showed how he did it, and there was no supernatural or spiritual connection whatsoever. While I'm no expert, It seems from what I have learned about yoga, like so many other exercise regimens, the primary focus is on controling your emotions along with your mind over body connection. (whew, that was a mouthful. i hope that makes sense)

    Instead of sorting the good, the bad, and the ugly out for people let's just take the easy way out and scrap the whole thing. Nothing like throwing the baby out with the bathwater, so to speak, eh? Or even better yet, why not present the subject in an objective or at least nonjudgmental way so people might actually learn something. Ahh well, isn't superstitious paranoia grand?

    I really want to do yoga....I told my mom that. Now I know why thought I did not "need" to do yoga. I remember, they had something against Tai-Bo too! grr!

    Thanks, but no-thanks - they both promise fantastic stuff but the reality is pants and leaves a bad taste in your mouth

    Imagines Simon in spandex, coz you HAVE tried it, to be able to make that comparison, right???
