He is clearly miles and miles in over his head. My advice: STOP. NOW. Don't touch anything and don't say anything. Go read books on ethical hacking and wiretapping / unauthorized access law. He's likely already in violation of several laws, possibly several federal laws. And now he's admitted to them publicly on the internet. -__-

Better yet, hire a lawyer (EFF, maybe?). "I read it in a library" won't help a lot in court.

Just read the real bible and you'll be confusing fundies left and right.

And you can go for even nastier than confusing if you want. For example, find someone who's a fan of that Ezekiel 4:9 bread, and tell them that the whole recipe given by God there continues all the way to Ezekiel 4:13: "and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man". Yep, God's recipe there actually calls for human shit as an ingredient for that bread. (Though Ezekiel himself, for being so faithful and kosher all his life, gets Gods dispensation in 4:15 to eat his with cow shit instead.)

Especially if you spring that on them after they ate some, honestly, no amount of lolcat bible can even start to compare :p

The poop wasn't an ingredient, it was the fuel used to cook the bread: "And you shall eat it as barley cakes; and bake it using fuel of human waste in their sight.”

Doesn't make it a whole lot more pleasant, but let's at least be factually correct.

Come on guys. Groklaw has been covering this thing since the very beginning. The least you could do is link to the article there. Give a little respect to Pam Jones for following this long slog like a trouper.

I can't see this being of any benefit in the long term. The problem is, even if they -have- autism or other defects, labeling them will do nothing to have them overcome it and will lead the majority of them to make excuses to why they aren't productive members of society. I really don't understand the western mentality of labeling everyone to try to "help". Which is going to make people want to get ahead in life? Being told "hey you have -insert mental disability here-" or "hey, your not doing to great in -insert school subject here-". One has people making excuses and the other just has them either not focus on that and focus on what they are good at or try harder.

Are you serious? The sooner you get a diagnosis, the more therapy and assistance you can provide, which leads to greater success as the child gets older. Speech delays, learning disabilities...they don't have to be show stoppers. How much harder is it when parents struggle for years without knowing what's going on? How much harder is it for the kid when everyone just thinks s/he's dumb or lazy, not realizing there's an actual underlying condition? When you know what that condition is, you know how to approach it and offer help. It's not just a matter of applying a label and being done with it...it's understanding that the child has a neurological condition and finding ways to work with and around it.
