A friend of mine (an agnostic!) received this in his e-mail a few days
back. I don't know what most people on this list will think, but I
think it's hilarious. (A million and a half people dead in Sodom and
Gomorrah? How big do they think these cities were?) So I thought I'd
let you folks get a laugh out of it to.
As you can probably tell, I in no way endorse what is said here (even
in the places where I agree with it :-)
