Is it that you don't like the style and artistic merit of the theme, or that it is Christian / Bible based?

I noticed you posted a similar comment for the "Debian Christians" wallpaper, (does this show which one of the two above?)

If you feel animosity towards Christianity, and maybe if you've ever had a bad experience with someone claiming to be a Christian, that is the sin within *them*, remembering that Jesus loves you with a perfect love.

Shalom (Peace). - Sep 28 2006

Really? I find that interesting. I think however it might be more of a cultural / traditional thing esp. in western society than anything else...

Although people were traditionally buried, as writ in the Bible, there was no demand for cadavers back then, when studies of anatomy were very basic.

Burial was simply a matter of good hygiene, though they didn't know it (for which God amply equipped the Jews: e.g. instructions to wash after touching a dead body / etc. , thousands of years before the discovery of microbes!)


"Christians usually have to many hangups about donating to scientific purpose."

There is no Biblical basis for this. Though I have just breezed through *why* people in Judeo/Chrisitan societes were buried, this is not to the exclusion of the possibility of dissection. The body is not vaulted or valued in any such way that it is too special to have such things happen to it once the soul has left it.

In fact, the apostle Paul says:

2 Corinthians 5:4
"For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life." (NIV)

...As you can see, Paul describes the body as a "tent" (or more literally, a "tabernacle"): a temporary dwelling place, in this case for the soul. The body, as with the tent, which is cast off once we move into a *real* house, is of no value of itself! There is no reason why we should feel inhibited about leaving some thing we no longer have use of for the benefit of others!

So if you meet a person claiming to be a Christian who has such a hangup, ask them on exactly what they base this on in the Bible. Otherwise, it's not Scriptural and certainly not Christian! - Sep 28 2006

"Please don't be offended"

..That wouldn't be christian :-)

"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5or rude.

...it is not irritable or resentful;

...Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." (NIV) - Sep 27 2006

"Look, I have no problem with this content, but stuff posted here is supposed to be KDE related. As far as I can see, this had nothing to do with KDE, and would probably be better off on a christian-related site."

I'm not offended (why should I be?). However, this has _everything_ to do with KDE. It is a ksplash theme. Given that there is *all sorts* of material on this website, I thought this would be a good alternative.

I suppose muslim or buddhist anatomy is supposed to be different?
...No, nobody has thought of the soul as part of the body since the darkness of the middle ages
