per my update in "wish me luck thread"...

My dh asks if modern medicine is now wiser than God?

So, I need to get the info on "modern medicine" and how it came about. Should I even mention that most of our American modern medicine doesn't acknowledge the facts and research and only teaches the drs to cut? maybe not...

I'll be in religion now with the rest. I know I saw some great Martin Luther quotes there some time ago...

thanks A&A, I've read that a few times, that's why I *knew* I should expect a change of tacks.

Anyway, I'm thinking that the modern circ is creepy, being a victorian holdover against masturbation?

I know know KNOW there is info on this that I haven't saved to my favorites.

The form of circumcision performed in biblical times (for instance, Abraham and the like) was far less radical than what is done today:

So even without discussing the religious aspects specifically, it can be pretty easily shown that the modern form of circumcision is not supported by either Jewish or Christian texts. Only less radical forms, where most of the foreskin is left intact, are supported by them.
