For all that, you'll still be in a ricer.
Most cars can't get out of a snow drift with the traction control on. Sometimes you need wheelspin.
My V8 may only be 5.6L, but it will still leave a patch if I let it (realistically, it probably has more power than any of the 60s muscle cars, given the way that measuring power has changed over the decades). I've dione it by accident before in reverse (there's no traction control in reverse).
Most of those rules are the basis of the legal system in most place: don't kill, don't steal, etc. This is the primary reason the Ten Commandments was in so many courthouses: it's important historically to our legal system.
And, seriously, every damn belief system has been used as the basis for mass killing by government. The content of belief systems rarely has anything to do with the killing - it's just the most convenient excuse.
The 4th commandment can be understood in an invisible-unicorn-free way, and it's good advice. For the workaholic: don't spend 7 days a week working, take one day to de-stress, connect with community and family, and think about stuff other than work. Even God rested on the 7th day.
Sounds like good advice to me.
The 2nd commandment was about putting the business of idolaters out of work. If it were modernized to "that shalt not be a televangelist" I'd get behind it as well.
Marriage makes just as much sense as a formal business partnership does, and the same body of law should really apply to both. Once you decide to live together and mingle funds, you need a way to sort that all out when it ends.
Don't confuse the reason with the explanation. The reason that almost every surviving religion tries to focus sex exclusively on reproduction is because that's why they're the surviving religions. Those who bred faster overcame those who bred slower, and over the centuries pro-breeding religions/cultures won out. Different religions have different moral justifications for that, but the explanation's don't matter much.
The Bible of course has next to nothing to say about homosexuality, because it just wasn't relevant until recently: your duty to the tribe was to form a stable breeding relationship, and who (or what) you had sex with (or wanted to) for fun on the side just wasn't important.
As an adulterer (not really), I do not want to be sent for judgement in a courthouse that displays the ten commandments.
I want to believe that I am going to be treated fairly in the law, but perhaps I worship a Hindu deity, perhaps I swear, perhaps I not only covet my neighbors wife, but I bone her too.
The ten commandments have no place on public property dedicated to writing, or applying the laws of man.
Swearing on a bible is fine, if it's something that will make someone's oath more sincere (the only time I've had to swear it was done without a bible, it was there as an option).
If you want real religious nut-cases, here are some who went about London trying to "impose" Sharia law on otherwise peaceful Londoners going about their own quiet, lawful business.
This is the problem with religion. At the moment it just happens to be Islam that's in fashion with the young and impressionable.
The court had been told that Horner and the 23-year-old man drove alongside Joshua Bilton and Anna Reddiford in Bethnal Green and yelled at them through a megaphone. Horner shouted: "Let go of each other's hands. This is a Muslim area!" The couple initially believed it was a joke but the group repeated the warning until they let go of each other's hands.
The world is full of nut-cases who think they know better than everyone else and who think it is their business to "put things in order."
The older I get, the less I respect the "religious" (of all religions, not just Islam).
There was no real chance for life on Earth before the Iron Catastrophe, which melted the crust and likely was the first time the crust was anything like a smooth layer. Life may have formed as "quickly" as a hundred million years after the crust cooled enough to have liquid water pooling.
Mars is less certain, but I'd assume it went through the same cycle, and had at least a couple hundred million years with stable liquid water before its core solidified and stopped spinning.
