Ok, I'm kinda thinking that we need a World wide government, so as to impose a law that states "No group of people can be held acountable for the actions of there ancestors, especially if there has been no noticable benifit to the particular group of people due to the past actions."

I mean, how rediculous is this. As I understand it, the entire story of Exodus has been debunked, and the supposed "slaves" were well treated workers. Thats what history channel seems to think anyhow.

As if we don't have enough problems between religions, lets go and dig up a few more.

And all of this happened over 3,000 years ago? I don't suppose there are any witnesses are there? Perhaps they should just consider it a part of the heritage and leave it at that? :smile:

you mean witnesses would be more reliable than "the word of God"???

from the same article:
"Hilmi said Egyptian and European historical and religious experts were trying to establish if the biblical passage could be taken as fact, and hence form the basis for a lawsuit.
He said the argument that Jews could sue Egypt for enslaving them was also being studied by experts."


still waiting for all the nations in Africa to sue somebody for the centuries of slavery they endured. And maybe most of the Europe can sue Italy for the slaves taken by the romans. That would be fun

The word of god would be fine, so long as he's called as a witness. Otherwise it's just heresay.

I like your logic...so Israel can be bulldozed now, since the Jews were kicked out over 1000 years ago?

No, of course not. I'm suggesting that since they (now) have their livelihood, and their heritage, they should just leave it at that.

What do you mean 'of course not'??

heh,

Couldn't they say the bible serves as an Affidavit?

How about, lets sue Eve for committing the original sin, and thereby triggering the chain of events that has brought us to today. All the murders, starvations, crusades, etc that has reaked havoc on mankind.

In fact, its all her fault that the jews had to steal gold and silver from egypt.

The question is who to sue?

Well, obviously all the men would have to sue all the women. But then all the women could sue God for giving them periods, and painful childbirth. Then, let's see, all the children could sue all of their parents for making them eat liver and broccoli...

Not without a living witness to the affidavit being made, otherwise it's just written heresay. Besides, I want to see what god says when they get her on the stand.
