    And for misogamy all it requires are the Pauline Letters. There are any number of bad habits promoted by Torah, Biblical or Q’ran references, and very few good one. The only good habits that I’ve been able to find in an ancient text are those in the Kamasutra and the various writings of the Tantric sects, the practice of which I find quite amusing…

    SinJin – I bought the Dawkin’s book you recommended this weekend. It looks like a great book to read with my daughter. Thanks again.
    I also bought Michael Shermer’s “The Believing Brain”
