That's really nice fella. The disease is called RABIES. Lot's of "religious rules" were and are merely common sense issued safety measure for common health concerns. Washing germs of hands when a bunch of you dip yer spew funky into the same bowl and jam yer fingers in your mouth.

Same sort of stuff in many other religions.

The smart people that religious leaders surounded themselves with for centuries and still do figured out these "health hazards" by observation and common senbse decuctions, then the "leader" would issue the religious "edict" and the "higher safety" of his or her followers would be assured.

I mean GET A CLUE. Look up the word GERMS. It's same as "unclean"- DUH.
