How come Jesus is never quoted in fortune cookies?

because fortune cookies mean nothing unless you believe in what they say.
So, are you saying that all that Eastern philosophy contained in countless fortune cookies is meaningless?
it is meaningless unless you believe in it. Belief makes realities.
There is very little real Eastern Philosophy in fortune cookies.
San Francisco and Los Angeles both lay claim to the origin of the fortune cookie. Makoto Hagiwara of Golden Gate Park's Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco is said to have invented the cookie in 1909, while David Jung, founder of the Hong Kong Noodle Company in Los Angeles, is said to have invented them in 1918.
San Francisco's Court of Historical Review ruled in 1983 in favor of San Francisco. Although the court was presided over by a Federal judge, the court itself has been criticized as being less than serious and biased in favor of San Francisco. Its conclusions, therefore, might not be the final word on the subject.
The cookies are generally called by the English term fortune cookies, even by Chinese Americans, as there is no standard Chinese term for them.
So there you have it, Jesus couldn't have eaten them at all.
Confucius is often quotes in fortune cookies. Isn't this Eastern philosophy?
Did you read where they first invented them in my last post?
Yeah, I read it. So what? There aren't Asians in San Francisco? Isn't Eastern philosophy transportable?
Your question was, in the very first sentence," How come Jesus is never quoted in fortune cookies? " , So I answered you by showing you that fortune cookies weren't invented until the 20th century.
Huh? Why can't you get a Jesus quote from the Bible in the 20th Century?
My point is that when Jesus was around there wasn't anyone taking notes of whatever he said. They only wrote about him over 100 years after he died. So how can anyone have quotes friom Jesus?
"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for they shall inherit the Earth." See, I just quoted him.
And how did anyone get that quote if there was nothing written during his lifetime?
They remembered it. Oral history - very popular in the good old days.
They remembered what Jesus said for over 100 years, exactly as it was stated. That is very preposterous and a lie.
i suggest moving this thread to the religion or cesspool forum. in my opinion the cesspool is an upgrade compared to the religion forum.
Why not make it a racial thread .....we'll see how many people think Asians are smarter than whites and blacks ...or something like that? Wouldn't that be fun?
yeah good idea, you could turn a thread about chicken soup into a racial thread. i suppose thats a unique talent though.
Was oral rememberance of the Iliad by bards over the centuries once first spoken by Homer a lie? You grossly underestimate the accuracy of oral tradition.
