--]Religion considered harmful. I agree. ;-)

While i agree I only agree about 90%. there are some aspects of religion
which I admire, though not many of the "organized" tactics that are used.

Quick examples The jesuits (thanks for the short dark age fellas) lots of
the jewish culture (which is one of those religions which is also a
culture deeply ingrained in ways not just of the God mythos but of
learning the rules by which to survive) ....

The words of jesus are not so harmfull, but when used by the "curch: they
have lead to some harmfull shit. Same for the words of Allha and J*H*V*

Maybe the worst parts of religion can be said to be in the application,
not in the source.....

Hence, Perl can make beuaty or ugly...The choice is in the use.
