    That's truly scary...that people even need to be warned crucifixion is dangerous. :uhh: :confused: You would think knowing that even the son of God died by crucifixion (I'm assuming those trying this believe that story) might be enough to hint that there's something inherently dangerous about it. :rolleyes: I have to admit there's a little voice in the back of my head asking why bother telling them it's dangerous if they don't know it already. :devil:

    I saw a thing on this on tv. They know its not safe, they know they could die or whatever, but its a religious thing. You know how people can be about religious things. Actually, i think its kinda weird that tourists are even allowed to watch, and really sick actually. Its one thing to get crucified because of a belief, its another thing to watch someone do it cause it looks cool.

    to make it more real they should offer death row inmates choice of dying on the cross instead on electric chair.

    The thing that always gets me about the superfreaks is have they even thought about what they are doing from either a practical or religious standpoint? The whole point of Christianity is that Jesus died on the cross so you don't have to.

    I think you've answered your own question. Or, perhaps it would make them better than god, not just followers, if they can survive what the son of god could not? :confused: I don't try to understand them, it would only make me crazier than they are.

    You are crazier than them, and so am I, and I suspect a few others around here. The difference is that they're stupid crazy. Our craziness leads us along new intellectual pathways; theirs blocks them off. :approve:

    Its like wiping the arm of a death row inmate with alcohol before they needle him with lethal injection to kill him. Dont want him to get an infection now do we....
