Three-fourths of the original hieroglyphics inscription appears to have survived, and counterclockwise reads: Joseph said it represents God sitting upon his throne.

It’s interesting to note that in some earlier editions of the BOA the church erased the penis so it wouldn’t look pornographic. It has since been restored in our current versions. But isn’t it somewhat disturbing that Joseph would say that this pagan god with his exposed penis is our Heavenly Father?

I love to watch reruns of Seinfeld. And there are so many quotes and situations from that show that have made it into normal everyday conversation. Junior Mints “They’re so refreshing”. Of course, the one here – “It’s not a lie if you believe it” – is from an episode “The Beard” in which Jerry Seinfeld was going to take a polygraph test as a result of a bet he made with a girl he was dating about whether or not he watched Melrose Place.
Interlaced through that episode are story lines about Elaine dating a gay man and thinking she could get him to “switch teams,” and George wearing a toupee as he begins dating a bald woman and Elaine ripping the toupee of his head and throwing it out the window because she says he’s acting like a jerk – after which the bald woman breaks up with George. That is one of the best things about Seinfeld episodes – the way in which so many story lines are intertwined.
That line – “It’s not a lie if you believe it” – really says a lot. Many people lie to themselves all the time – and the more the lie is told, the more it seems less like a lie and more like the truth. Of course, involved in that process is a certain amount of delusion, especially when the lie starts to morph and transform into “the absolute truth” in the person’s mind.
And usually when that happens, they close themselves off to hearing any opposing opinions – or the actual facts. But what is worse, at least in my opinion, is when religious organizations lie to people.

And at the end of dinner my friend turns to me, and he says, “Elna, I dare you to make a toast. Everybody shut up, and I said, “I’d like to make a toast to 7-Eleven for redefining convenience. And the thing that I love so much about saying yes is that where you start at the beginning of the day and where you end up can be two totally different places based on all the things that you say yes to.
But then there’s this other side of my life, which is that I do say no to a lot of things. And with sex, the thing I’ve learned is it’s one thing to say no to having sex with someone you’ve dated for two weeks. It’s actually pretty easy because for me that would be kinda slutty to just say yes after two weeks.
