I'm sorry, but isn't this Ben Nelms story? I Can't help but think that our Bonker$, the lying SOB that he is, wouldn't have anything to do with this post. of course I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Hyrch::: DM was talking about Bonkers!

I think Bonkers wrote the comments, not the AD 33 story with pictures!
He just added some other facts. (people don't usually want to hear about such things, as some feel those people lived and acted just as we do now).
We often live in the past as a defense of not being able to cope.

A.D. 33 pictures

Wouldn't it be interesting to compare 2010 to A. D. 33?

All wore robes. (Romans wore skirts).
No electricity, running water, gas or oil.
No cell phones or TV.
No cars or buses or trains or planes or horses--not sure about cows.
No refrigerators or stoves, if you don't count flat rocks.
No hospitals or doctors. I'm not sure what Luke had in his bag!
There were taxes if everyone could get caught and had some "money."
Honey and cooked locusts were staples.
No haircuts or shaving, women or men.
Still a lot of Roman and Greek Gods and Goddesses around the country.
I think carpenters were actual leather smiths using camel hides. What would they know about lumber from a tree if there were any trees.

People must have mostly been half blind--no optometrists or glasses yet.
No showers and no tubs and usually no baths.
Muhammad wasn't even born yet.
The whole world was within a camel ride for a few days. China? Never heard of it. USA had a few Indians who came over through Russia and China.

They did fight each other however, many were killed with the jaw-bone of an ass. And a great big slingshot.

No fun making intended here, they existed from about 7 thousand years ago until this day.
The sun even went around us then.
