Seguimos penetrando en algunas de las más importantes óperas basadas en textos de William Shakespeare. Hoy tenemos sobre el tapete el de Hamlet; y nos detenemos en la ópera de mismo título de Ambroise Thomas. Naturalmente, escuchamos el famoso Brindis, en este caso con el protagonismo de uno de los barítonos que más cantó el papel, en italiano, por supuesto: el gran Mattia Battistini. Versión señorial y elegante la suya. Como está mandado aparece acompañado por el coro. Luego nos deleitamos con el arte exquisito de la soprano Natalie Dessay, que nos ofrece la extensa aria de la locura de Ofelia. Primero el vals y después la célebre Balada. Enseguida traemos otra famosa pieza del Cisne, esta una comedia, Las alegres comadres de Windsor, a la que, entre otros, puso música Otto Nicolai. Escuchamos la importante y conocida Obertura en versión de la Orquesta de la Ópera de Baviera dirigida por Robert Heger. A continuación, el dúo entre Fluth (Ford) y Falstaff (cuyo recitativo comparamos con el diálogo entre Tamino y el Sprecher de La flauta mágica de Mozart) y, como cierre, el brindis del Gordinflón en la imponente voz del histórico bajo Gottlob Frick.

A very good morning to you! It is Sunday morning, the 26th of June 2022, and this is your friend, Angus Buchan, with a thought for today.“And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke.”Acts 6:10And then down to verse 15:“And all who sat in the council, looking steadfastly at him, saw his face as the face of an angel.”That was Stephen, the waiter. People are not interested in what we say. They want to hear what Jesus says. Do you remember the old hymn?The first verse goes like this: All of me and none of Him Then the second verse goes: Some of me and some of Him And then the third verse: All of Him and none of me.It's Bible scripture that sets the captives free, it is not William Shakespeare. It is not Sigmund Freud, no - It is the spoken word of God! That was exactly what Stephen was doing. Remember, Stephen was the first martyr in the Bible. People are starving for God's word in these last days. We must keep it simple... Remember educators complicate, and communicators, simplify.Stephen was a waiter. That's all he was and yet he spoke the word of God and he mesmerized the people with all the answers to life that they were looking for. You see, it is all in the Book, that's right! Healing, family, business... All the answers are there and they are very simple, that is why the devil is trying so hard to stamp out the reading of the Bible. He does not want us to quote Jesus. Ephesians 6:17 in the Bible tells us that the sword of the Spirit is the word of God. It is the only weapon that the Christian has. Many of us have got to get it out of the scabbard. It is rusty. It's blunt. We need to sharpen it up and when the devil comes at us with accusations, we return his accusations with the word of God - that defeats him every time. That is exactly what Jesus did when He was tempted in the desert. That young evangelist, Billy Graham, when he was starting out, preached a simple message. Once, he went out into the forest in the evening. He opened up his Bible, put it on a stump, a tree stump and he got down on his knees and said, “Lord, I don't understand everything in this Book but I am choosing by faith to believe every word.” And then he went out and he changed the world. Do it today, be a waiter for Jesus and the glory of God will shine through you! God bless you and have a wonderful Sunday!Goodbye.
Filippo e Marco della nostra redazione proseguono il loro viaggio alla (ri)scoperta dei film brutti (o presunti tali). Oggi è il turno di Tromeo and Juliet, rivisitazione in chiave splatter ed erotica della celebre tragedia Romeo e Giulietta, di William Shakespeare.
Cleopatra VII ha sido reconocida como una de las mujeres más poderosas, estratégicas y trascendentales de la historia del a humanidad. Sin embargo, Cleopatra es injustamente subestimada e incomprendida por la gran mayoría; nuestro conocimiento sobre ella está marcado por la mirada masculina y la cultura pop, principalmente por la película Cleopatra, protagonizada por Elizabeth Taylor y basada en la obra de William Shakespeare, Anthony y Cleopatra, donde se resaltaba una narrativa misógina hacia su persona donde todos los escritores y artistas fueron inconscientemente influenciados por el sesgo crítico de la antigua Roma, dominada por sus amores y muerte, como una heroína trágica. Ella desafió su destino de ser humillada y violentada por su enemigo al suicidarse. Extremadamente educada, demostró ser notablemente inteligente a temprana edad y se destacó por ser plurilingüe y negociadora. En medio de la guerra civil romana, Cleopatra se alió con Marco Antonio y más tarde tuvo tres hijos con él mientras formaba una alianza formidable, liderando un ejército para rebelarse contra su esposo/hermano después de que intentan matarla, fue una diplomática brillante, abrió comercio con Arabia e India, trayendo a Egipto la prosperidad económica y estabilidad social. Las grandes habilidades de liderazgo político de Cleopatra llevaron a llamarla Philopatris, que significa la que ama a su país, apoyada por su pueblo. Siempre pensando en el interés nacional de Egipto, influyó en el Imperio Romano como ninguna otra mujer antes, conduciendo a cambios en la forma en que gobernaron los romanos y otros imperios occidentales.

Welcome back listeners on today's podcast I had the pleasure of chatting with Robert Boog. He is a Calfornia Real Estate Broker and owns a company based in Valencia. A husband and father of two, he keeps himself busy with projects such as writing books and songs. One of his latest pieces titled Shakey's Madness explores the possibility that Shakespeare didn't actually exist and instead was a pen name as the work might indicate that he was bipolar!Learn a little bit more about this topic and Robert as we explore in a little more detail the context behind the speculations. Also, make sure to check out the links below for some of the other work by Robert including a tribute song that he wrote dedicated to the late great Kobe Bryant.

In today's episode, we are kicking off our series on William Shakespeare's Hamlet by giving you a synopsis of this looong play.

Rob talks to Danny Brassell, a former inner-city teacher on a mission to bring joy back into education and the workplace by transforming struggling and reluctant readers into more passionate and proficient readers. Danny shows audiences how to make reading a life-long habit and trains leaders how to communicate their messages through effective and inspirational storytelling. KEY TAKEAWAYS Danny is a reading ambassador encouraging others to take up reading regularly and he found is vocation while teaching children in inner cities. He coaches people to love reading and do it for pleasure. You can get children especially to love reading if you find text that is inspired by their interests. It is the subject matter that draws in a reader not the act of reading itself. The link between sports and knowledge is intrinsic. It is often philosophy that informs sports from an early age and reading is the root of this. Developing countries supply the world with hard worn, success hungry sportsmen and women and are looking to dominate the sports industry. Resilience is an aspect of character particularly prevalent amongst people of difficult origins. A good coach knows their team. Know everybody's strength, give everyone a role. BEST MOMENTS ‘Its ironic I'm considered Americas leading reading ambassador as I grew up hating reading. My father was a public librarian and I always hated the library growing up. The furniture was always uncomfortable, it always smelt funny to me, there was always some elderly woman telling me to be quiet and there is always some homeless guy who thinks he's a vampire hanging out in the library.' – Danny ‘There's no way I'm gonna get this kid to read Charles Dickens or William Shakespeare. But if I give him a newspaper article on Wayne Rooney the kid will devour it in, like, three seconds.' – Danny ‘When you have someone enthusiastic it makes my job really easy.' – Rob ‘To me the secret to being a good coach is to figure out the strengths of your different players. Figure out the hand that you've been dealt and turn it into a winning hand.' - Danny GUEST RESOURCES His work can be found on his websites at: https://dannybrassell.com/ https://freereadingtraining.com/frt https://freegiftfromdanny.com/ and via social media at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dannybrassell/ https://www.instagram.com/realdannybrassell/ https://www.youtube.com/dannybrassell VALUABLE RESOURCES Leader Manager Coach Podcast ABOUT THE HOST Rob Ryles is a UEFA A licensed coach with a League Managers Association qualification and a science and medicine background.

George Lamming, in full George William Lamming, (born June 8, 1927, Carrington Village, near Bridgetown, Barbados), was a West Indian novelist and essayist who wrote about decolonization and reconstruction in Caribbean nations.At Combermere High School, Lamming studied under Frank Collymore, editor of the Caribbean literary journal Bim, which published some of Lamming's early work. Lamming left Barbados and worked as a teacher in Trinidad from 1946 to 1950 before settling in England. His highly acclaimed first novel, In the Castle of My Skin(1953), is an autobiographical bildungsroman set against the backdrop of burgeoning nationalism in the British colonies of the Caribbean in the 1930s and '40s.Lamming continued to study decolonization in his succeeding three novels: The Emigrants (1954), a despairing, fragmentary work about Caribbean immigrants in post-World War II England; Of Age and Innocence (1958), a microcosmic look at the problems of political independence; and Season of Adventure (1960), in which a West Indian woman discovers her African heritage. The Pleasures of Exile (1960) is a collection of essays that examines Caribbean politics, race, and culture in an international context. Lamming's later novels included Water with Berries (1971), a political allegory based on William Shakespeare's The Tempest, and Natives of My Person (1971), about 16th-century explorers in the West Indies. His poetry and short stories were published in various anthologies, and Conversations, a volume of essays and interviews, was published in 1992.From https://www.britannica.com/biography/George-Lamming.

Welcome to Episode 1 of our Summer Series! I'm so excited to be together. Today, we are going to set the mindset for our summer. As you often hear me quote William Shakespeare, "Expectation is the root of all heartache." Today, we discuss all the ways in which high (and low) expectations can keep us stuck and suffering, and the mindset of awareness that can lead to transformation. Any transition can bring anxiety, but remember that anxiety and excitement are experienced exactly the same in the human body, so we have so many opportunities to reframe our thinking and make room for relief. Today, we discuss it all, along with some emotional stories from my own life that will fill you in on what is happening right now. Stay tuned to find out how you can contribute to our community this summer, and maybe even have your question featured on air! So much to look forward to.

The Play Podcast - 048 - Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare Host: Douglas Schatz Guest: Lucy Bailey The Play Podcast is a podcast dedicated to exploring the greatest new and classic plays. In each episode we choose a single play to talk about in depth with our expert guest. We discuss the play's origins, its themes, characters, structure and impact. For us the play is the thing. William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing is rightly renowned for the “merry war” of wits between the reluctant lovers Beatrice and Benedick, but alongside their brilliant partnership, there is also a darker story of misogyny and betrayal that gives the play a more complex and challenging character. Lucy Bailey, director of the joyous production currently running at the Globe Theatre in London joins me to review this romantic rollercoaster.

Overview This has to be the greatest highlight of doing this podcast. I got to talk to Armin Shimerman - he of Quark fame from Star Trek DS9. This man is definitely a national treasure. He's a Shakespearean rhetoric scholar, teaches at USC and works with at risk youth. We discuss his book series which is an Edwardian historical novel that uses the characters from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night to weave a masterful tale. This man is so much beyond the characters we know him from and this interview is worth the listen for the knowledge he passes along. ------------------------------- On November 5, 2022, renown stage and television actor Armin Shimerman will release the final book of his historical trilogy, Illyria. Until then, readers are invited to enter the world he created – occupied by familiar and fantastic characters of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night – with a new bundle of the first two books in the series available through Jumpmaster Press.The series opens with Betrayal of Angels. Doctor John Dee is an Elizabethan mathematician, cryptographer, mystic, and The Queen's conjurer. He is commissioned by Her Majesty's spymaster, Sir Francis Walsingham, to uncover treason, reveal terrorists, and unveil threats to The Crown by a young Count who governs Illyria, an island in the English Channel. Dr. Dee is accosted by a teen playwright, William, who solicits the renowned scholar's mentorship, which results in an unlikely collaboration to sleuth out sedition on Illyria.The saga continues in book two, A Sea of Troubles. While John Dee investigates the loyalty of a Catholic nobleman on Illyria, he must overcome legal and reputational worries at home Meanwhile, his exiled young assistant William becomes more entangled with the people and the prejudices of the island, including an arranged marriage that is not to his liking. Who is to be believed and who is to be trusted in a time of shifting loyalties?“If you've ever wondered how a relatively unschooled William Shakespeare became the best writer of the English language, and if you've been intrigued by movies and books about the Elizabethan era, The Illyria Trilogy is my response to you. The era and its magic, its politics, its theater, its people, its superstitions, and its cruelty; swirl into that all the characters from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night including the actual man who was the prototype for Prospero in The Tempest. I know the time travel will inspire and entertain," said Armin. “... delightful book … Shimerman creates a charming …wonderful tale ...”Mike LoMonico Institute Director - Folger Shakespeare Library"What a treat to discover that such a remarkable actor would be an equally remarkable writer. “Betrayal of Angels,” … One hell of a story (and storyteller). I impatiently wait for the last two installments.”Rick Berman, Star Trek Executive Producer “Shimerman's fact-packed, historical adventure [is a] … must read … He had me at the first word …”Scott Carter Emmy-nominated TV producer About Armin A veteran of stage and screen, Armin is widely known for his portrayal of Quark on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Principal Snyder on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Other credits include notable appearances on TV shows from Hill Street Blues and The West Wing to CSI and dozens of others. His voice has been heard in many animated shows and popular game series such as Ratchet & Clank and BioShock. Armin is a renown stage actor, having performed on Broadway and stages across the country. He is also a Shakespeare scholar and teacher, theatre arts lecturer, and former Associate Artistic Director of the Antaeus Theatre Company in Los Angeles.

Our guests are the legendary Raqs Media Collective, formed in New Delhi in 1992, by Monica Narula, Jeebesh Bagchi and Shuddhabrata Sengupta. I like to call them intellectuals-at-large, but their production ranges from artistic to curatorial projects, from theoretical to educational works. The collective also co-founded Sarai—the inter-disciplinary and incubatory space at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies.You'll hear their unique blend of thinking on technologies and media, from surveillance to bureaucratic interfaces as deeply embedded in societal dynamics; and we'll get to explore together how they have been producing knowledge as artists. The tidal changes in image cultures; how digital technologies are intertwined with urban infrastructures; how the poetic is also the political; and ultimately the significance of languages are a few of the things that are lingering in my mind and provoking further thoughts after this conversation.EPISODE NOTES & LINKSBased in New Delhi, Raqs Media Collective comprises three practitioners: Jeebesh Bagchi, Monica Narula, and Shuddhabrata Sengupta. For the past three decades, the Collective has been concerned with urbanism, epistemology, technology, globalization, and the experience of time. Drawing upon critical theory and political philosophy, their work is marked by active inquiry, double-meanings, pluralism, and entanglement. https://www.raqsmediacollective.net/Sarai is among South Asia's most prominent and productive platforms for research and reflection on the transformation of urban space and contemporary realities, especially with regard to cities, data and information, law, and media infrastructures. https://sarai.net/about/Initiated by Ankur: Society for Alternatives in Education, Delhi, and Sarai-CSDS, Delhi in the year 2001 Cybermohalla is a network of dispersed labs for experimentation and exploration among young working-class individuals https://sarai.net/projects/cybermohalla/.The first Cybermohalla took place in LNJP (Lok Nayak Jarai Prakash), an informal settlement in Central Delhi.Parda-darii is a noun in Hindu meaning play of the veil, removing the veil, revealing the truth, and revealment of secrets.Can has written on the design of Cybermohalla Hub, in relation to his ‘Setting a Setting' idea.https://www.academia.edu/5980837/_Setting_and_Remaking_in_Cybermohalla_Hub_eds_Hirsch_N_and_S_Sarda_Berlin_Sternberg_Press_2012Curated by Raqs Media Collective “In the Open or In Stealth” was a group exhibition that has taken place at MACBA in 2018-2019 about the concept of a future in which multiple histories and geographies were placed in dialogue. https://www.macba.cat/en/exhibitions-activities/exhibitions/open-or-stealthThe Walker Art Center is a multidisciplinary contemporary art center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. https://walkerart.org/visitEstablished by Yoshiharu Tsukamoto and Momoyo Kaijima in Tokyo, Atelier Bow-Wow is an architecture firm. http://www.bow-wow.jp/Taken place in Walker Art center in 2003, How Latitudes Become Forms: Art in a Global Age was an exhibition about ways that globalization, or the “new internationalism in art” is affecting visual culture. https://walkerart.org/calendar/2003/how-latitudes-become-forms-art-in-a-global-agHow Latitudes Become Forms has a vintage website that constitutes substantial archival material about the project. http://latitudes.walkerart.org/overview/index.htmlFatwa is a ruling on a point of Islamic law given by a recognized authority.Abhinavagupta (c. 950 – 1016 CE) was a philosopher, mystic, and aesthetician from Kashmir.

On May 23, 2022, Meredith Michael joined JF and Phil for a live recording at Illuminated Brew Works, a craft brewery in Chicago, Illinois.The occasion was the launch of Weird Studies Black IPA, the fruit of a collaboration with IBW brewmaster Brian Buckman and his team of beer alchemists. The game plan was to talk about potions, but the final conversation ranges over a number of topics including singularity and repetition, time and eternity, alchemy and ritual, Okakura Kakuzō's The Book of Tea, cooking and pickling, and the cultural phenomenon Phil calls "weedhead sh*t."

We are so excited to be sharing this episode with you. This week, we are sitting down for a conversation with Sir Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen about their recently released second edition of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Complete Works of William Shakespeare, now available at a fine bookseller near you. The newly revised, wonderfully authoritative First Folio of William Shakespeare's Complete Works, edited by acclaimed Shakespearean scholars and endorsed by the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Company. Combining innovative scholarship with brilliant commentary and textual analysis that emphasizes performance history and values, this landmark edition is indispensable to students, theater professionals, and general readers alike. Jonathan Bate is professor of Shakespeare and Renaissance literature at the University of Warwick. Widely known as an award-winning biographer, critic, and broadcaster, Bate is the author of several books on Shakespeare, including Shakespeare and Ovid and The Genius of Shakespeare, which was described by Sir Peter Hall, founder of the RSC, as "the best modern book on Shakespeare." Eric Rasmussen is professor of English and director of graduate study at the University of Nevada. He is a co-editor of the Norton Anthology of English Renaissance Drama and of the forthcoming New Variorum Shakespeare edition of Hamlet. He has edited a number of works for the Arden Shakespeare series, Oxford's World's Classics, and the Revels Plays series, and is the general textual editor of the Internet Shakespeare Editions Project.

William Shakespeare uses the word “lottery” in his plays 8 times, often referring to a reward that comes after taking a gamble. While we may be familiar with lotteries like the Powerball or Publishing Clearinghouse here in the United States, a ticket based lottery where people could pay money for a chance to win big was brand new for England in Shakespeare's lifetime. The first time England had seen a real lottery, was the first national lottery in 1567, instituted by Elizabeth I, when Shakespeare was just 3 years old. Here today to share with us how this lottery worked, who bought tickets, and who ultimately won it, is our guest, Elizabeth Norton.
Closeted until his 20s, Award-winning blogger and author Lee Wind writes books today that would have dramatically changed his life as a young Gay boy. With his Master's Degree from Harvard, Lee commits to writing Cool Stuff For Queer Kids. His book "No Way, They Were Gay? Hidden Lives and Secret Loves" explores the hidden (and often surprising) Queer lives and loves of two dozen historical figures, including William Shakespeare, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. "I give young people access to a hidden history that can be life-changing. History has been sanitized for the protection of those in power, leaving out the stories of women, people of colour, indigenous people, disabled people, and – my focus – men who loved men, women who loved women, people who loved without regard to gender, and people who lived outside gender boundaries." Giving young people access to this hidden history is life-changing. Seeing people like you in the past changes how you see your place at the table now. And that changes what you can imagine for the future."

John Milton, (born Dec. 9, 1608, London, Eng.—died Nov. 8?, 1674, London?), was an English poet and pamphleteer. Milton attended the University of Cambridge (1625–32), where he wrote poems in Latin, Italian, and English; these include the companion poems “L'Allegro” and “Il Penseroso,” both written c. 1631. In 1632–39 he engaged in private study—writing the masque Comus (first performed 1634) and the elegy “Lycidas” (1638)—and toured Europe, spending most of his time in Italy. Concerned with the republican cause in England, he spent much of 1641–60 pamphleteering for civil and religious liberty and serving in Oliver Cromwell's government. His best-known prose is in the pamphlets Areopagitica, on freedom of the press, and Of Education (both 1644). He also wrote tracts on divorce and against the monarchy and the Church of England. He lost his sight c. 1651 and thereafter dictated his works. After the Restoration he was arrested as a prominent defender of the Commonwealth but was soon released. Paradise Lost (1667, 1674), considered the greatest epic poem in English, uses blank verse and reworks Classical epic conventions to recount the Fall of Man; Milton's characterization of Satan has been widely admired. Paradise Regained (1671) is a shorter epic in which Christ overcomes Satan the tempter, and Samson Agonistes (1671) is a dramatic poem in which the Old Testament figure conquers self-pity and despair to become God's champion. History of Britain was incomplete when published in 1670, and an unfinished work on theology was discovered in 1823. Milton is generally considered the greatest English poet after William Shakespeare.From https://www.britannica.com/summary/John-Milton.

William Shakespeare is widely considered to be one of the most prolific and influential writers of all time. But one group of individuals, who call themselves “Oxfordians” and their theory the "Shakespeare Authorship Question," falsely claim that what we know to be Shakespeare's plays and poetry were actually penned by someone else. In this episode, ACFE Chief Training Officer John Gill, J.D., CFE, joins Michael Pocalyko, CFE, the CEO of SI, as they look at how the qualities of those claiming to disprove Shakespeare's authorship parallel the character of financial and investment fraudsters.

In this episode, we are in conversation with the architect, writer, and Professor of Architecture at Yale, Keller Easterling. Her books include Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space (Verso, 2014); Enduring Innocence: Global Architecture and its Political Masquerades (MIT, 2005); and her latest Medium Design: Knowing How to Work on the World, to which we dedicate special attention to in this episode.I think Easterling's project boils down to how architecture and design can actually intervene and/or contribute to the cultural change around social justice and ecological crises; through thinking about, and ‘knowing-how' to work the systems at play. So designing within interplay; rather than the total compliance and submission on behalf of the architectural profession is what she seeks. She redirects our attention to the spatial dimension of how things are arranged, be it politically, financially, or socially. Episode Notes & Linkshttp://kellereasterling.com/ In Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space, Keller Easterling reveals the nexus of emerging governmental and corporate forces buried within the concrete and fiber-optics of our modern habitat. https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/enduring-innocence http://kellereasterling.com/books/extrastatecraft-the-power-of-infrastructure-spaceIn Enduring Innocence, Keller Easterling tells the stories of outlaw "spatial products"—resorts, information technology campuses, retail chains, golf courses, ports, and other hybrid spaces that exist outside normal constituencies and jurisdictions—in difficult political situations around the world. https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/enduring-innocenceMedium Design by Keller Easterling looks not to new technologies for innovation but rather to sophisticated relationships between emergent and incumbent technologies. It does not try to eliminate problems but rather put them together in productive combinations. And it offers forms of activism for modulating power and temperament in organisations of all kinds. https://www.versobooks.com/books/3245-medium-designhttp://kellereasterling.com/books/medium-design-knowing-how-to-work-on-the-worldElements of Architecture was the title of the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale curated by Rem Koolhaas. https://www.labiennale.org/en/architecture/2014/elements-architectureBeatriz Colomina is an architecture historian, theorist, and curator.Mark Wigley is an architect and author.

"1. Weird insults and curses. The Monty Python crew may have coined some of the best insults of the last 100 years: Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries. But for centuries the reigning master was Shakespeare: It is certain that when he makes water his urine is congealed ice. Had John Cleese and William Shakespeare lived in the Iron Age, though, some of the Bible writers might have given them a run for their money. Christians scoot past these passages, but one hell-bound humorist used them to create a biblical curse generator. She lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. Ezekiel 23:20 NIV You will be pledged to be married to a woman, but another will take her and rape her. You will build a house, but you will not live in it. You will plant a vineyard, but you will not even begin to enjoy its fruit. Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will eat none of it. Your donkey will be forcibly taken from you and will not be returned. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and no one will rescue them. . . . The Lord will afflict your knees and legs with painful boils that cannot be cured, spreading from the soles of your feet to the top of your head. Deuteronomy 28:30-31,35 2. Awkwardly useless commandments. The Bible is chock-a-block with dos and don'ts. Some of them are simply statements of universal ethical principles like Do to others what you would have them do to you, or Don't lie, or Don't covet your neighbor's possessions. But from a moral standpoint most of them are simply useless or even embarrassing—especially if you think God could have used the space to say Don't have sex with anyone who doesn't want you to or Wash your hands after you go to the bathroom. Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material. Leviticus 19:19 Ye shall not round the corners of your heads. Leviticus 19:27 3. Silly food rules. The early Hebrews probably didn't have an obesity epidemic like the one that has spread around the globe today. Even so, one might think that if an unchanging and eternal God were going to give out food rules he might have considered the earnest Middle-American believers who would be coming along in 2014. A little divine focus on amping up leafy green vegetables and avoiding sweets might have gone a long way. Instead, the Bible strictly forbids eating rabbit, shellfish, pork, weasels, scavengers, reptiles, and owls. As is, Christians simply ignore the eating advisories in the Old Testament, even though they claim that edicts like the Ten Commandments and the anti-queer clobber verses still apply. All that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you. Leviticus 11:9-12 Thou shalt not boil a kid in its mother's milk. Exodus 23:19." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support
