Whoa, Harvey, lighten up, man. I understand under these trying
circumstances the emotional response however. Im not sure
that you would object to modifying obviously false portions
of scripture by inserting true scientific ones. Is that lying? If
we inserted the meme: "There *is* no afterlife," is that lying?
How about "No houris for you," in place of the ones that promise
72 of them for the martyrs?
Recall that denial and deception are as much a part of warfare
as weapons. Denial and deception are seen in every species
of animal that I know of. Let us be truthful with dealing with
truth. When fighting a war, let us use every trick in the book.
And invent new ones that are not in there yet. spike
