Apparently we are not all created equal

Apparently we are not all created equal May 21, 2009

Have you ever wondered how much you were actually worth? Well according to the god of the Old Testament, we’re not all created equal.

Check out this passage from Leviticus, and then the chart created for Irreligion.org.

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be for the LORD by thy estimation.

3And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

 4And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.

 5And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.

 6And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.

 7And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.

— Leviticus 27:1-7
