  • Better question: how do you decide which items to take literally and which ones not to?

  • It's tricky. You take the lessons to heart but you have to consider the time period. So the punishments were good then but not so much now. The lesson, however, is the important part.

  • Don't forget, if you take too much of it literally, people will tell you you're an "extremist"

    I'm personally not religious though. But it's funny to think about how members of ISIS actually believe they are doing the right thing, and will go to heaven, and get a harem of 72 virgins for acting in the name of Allah.

    but I do think they're on to something.
