Continuing my theme of simply reposting others’ blogs: “Bad Astronomer” Phil Plait has an entertaining recent post: “Are the Ten Commandments really the basis for our laws?”
I’ve blogged on the topic a few times, including: “Religious Government Possible? No, and…Yes!”, and specifically on the different versions of the (not actually ten) Ten Coomsndments found in the one Bible, in “Amending the Commandments”.
But Phil’s article is much better written and entertaining. 🙂
