As a few people (including myself) have said...

Being a true gentleman and knight starts within childhood. If it does not happen then, then it will never happen at all.

Come back here! I'll bite your bloody legs off!

Sorry, Mystic, couldn't resist responding to Philo.

I could accept your variation on the old code, but even then there's a the problem with your interpretation... your beliefs couldn't shift and grow as you learn. Life has a way of changing your perspective.

That reminds me of an old joke: A republican is a democrat who's been mugged by reality.

That is where I differ. My dream since I was very young has been to re-write this code using a mix of the European Knight and the Japanese Samurai.

I do not think in today's times it should be the church because the church is not dominant like it was back then. Today it should be to your own personal beliefs in which you can not alter them and must stay totally true to them.

Right off the bat, I'm screwed... just can't buy into all that any churches proclaims - maybe a little from each, but not the whole enchilada. Guess I'll just have to be a black knight.

I must admit that I do not agree with all of this.

This is a very old piece and figured I would share it since I know some others find this stuff interesting. If I find an updated bit, I will post it.

I must admit... like Nicholas Cage's characted said in the movie "National treasure". People just do not talk this way anymore. It is very beautiful really.
