Fried chicken, made in Kentucky, was around way before it was called "Kentucky Fried Chicken".. Jews existed way before they were called that way (or called themselves 'Jews').

Fried chicken, made in Kentucky, was around way before it was called "Kentucky Fried Chicken".. Jews existed way before they were called that way (or called themselves 'Jews'). then the Sumerians would be like the ones who first thought of killing and frying the chicken so to speak. 'the jews' lived along side and inter-marrying with the Sumerians - worshiped their gods in a sense they could actually be just Sumerians really - Iraqi's . ( not unlike someone who's Grandparent moved to the US from another country. The kids may consider themselves Americans but their ethnicity is another matter. ... [More]

No, it started in the Reeses. I guess tit would have to be spelled caramel for it to really be applicable. It struck me funny none the less.

seems so. forget that there were no such people as Jews when the Sumerians wrote of the flood story where the biblical version written far later has more than 20 or so points in common. There are great flood myths from all over the world. Yet no great floods (capable of covering mountains) have been observed in historical times. Their frequency is thus likely to be less than one every 10 thousand years. "Mythology speaks of such world calamities as a great fire and a deluge that happened a long time ago, and myths describing such calamities are worldwide in occurrence. In the Philippines, ther...

every culture has it's flood myth. no doubt floods have happened , just not world wide even if it was the result of a meteor strike. Also the account written by the Sumerians which far predates the bible flood and where the people who later became known as Hebrews in fact lived in , around , with , and for all intent and purposes were in a real sense Sumerians since they too originated from Iraq/Iran would have had the Sumerian myth ingrained in them even before it was written down by Sumerians since it was an oral traditional story before that. a tribe(s) broke itself off from the tribes livi...

I think everyone has forgotten one important part of the flood story. The rainbow. According to the story there were no rainbows before the flood.
