If that was Midgley's interpretation, then perhaps in a further post he will offer the explanation of God preferring the meat sacrifice of Abel to the vegetable sacrifice of Cain, because the Levitical priests were getting sick and tired of eating turnips and wanted some roast lamb.

Yeah, that explanation was premised on some later writer (who may have been a priest and was tired of eating turnip offerings) creating the stories in Genesis. Of course, historical data found in the ancient FARMSmalfactorum suggests otherwise.

It's sort of like my explanation of why pork is a forbidden meat for Jews and Muslims. Their ancestors, driven into a ravenous frenzy by the smell of cooking bacon, could not wait for it to cook properly before eating it. As a result, they developed trichinosis which lead to the Jewish laws of Kashruth. So much for that Bradford!!!

Even more evidence on the impending final battle between the Interpreterites and the Maxwellites.

This time President Dallin Oaks weighs in and declares that both groups must use their right rather than their left hand when wielding a battleax or broad sword.

It might be wise for the Maxwellites to have some stone box set aside to bury the golden SSDs containing their history and research findings.
