Yeah, some of them are basic survival rules but many of them are societal controls designed to maintain a top down authority structure and enforce a mostly patriarchal dominated society.

Now, I'm not a feminist or any -ist really, but it seems that most religious rules are just ridiculous these days.

I can understand if a person WANTS to follow them and it makes them fulfilled to do so. But... trying to legislate them is a no-go from me.

And all the prophecy about what's going to happen if we don't follow these laws feels like a Sunday afternoon UFO's did it documentary.
