On God and Sex

2002-05-07 14:29:34+00 by ziffle 6 comments

A discussion of Jews and a belief in god

"It is the Atheist rather than the Agnostic, the denier rather than the doubter who creates the problem for Traditional Judaism." ... "The Torah talks about loving God and knowing God , but nowhere talks about proving the existence of God."

and its corollary, Can Sex and Religion go together?

"The Biblical laws of marriage require, as we have mentioned, a man to provide for his wife sexually."

Dan, I put plenty of <cr>'s in this thing - but it does not seem to format - the URL's don't want to cooperate either - what did I do wrong?

I don't know. <cr> wise, the browser differences are enough that I ignore all of them, I should probably go back and make another pass at that now, see what the current standards are.

And I've no idea about the URLs, unless I'm looking for something that terminates only in a few endings. I had fun mucking about with Flutterby code last night, so maybe I'll actually get to some of these upgrades sometime soon.

And apologies for the presumption, but I went in and tweaked the links a bit.

I'm really not sure now, the critical loop looks like:

while ($text =~ s/^(.*?|.*?[^""])((https?|ftp):[^" ]*[^",.\) ])//sg)

And I got too little sleep last night to read Perl cleanly this morning.

Double-check that regex. [^""] ?

Double quotes are there to unconfuse cperl-mode, otherwise its simplistic parser thinks there's an unterminated string.
