Millions of years of evolution in mammals around the globe, prove that a foreskin is not going to kill you. It isn't going to make you get sick, die of cancer, or scare away turtles. Mutilating the foreskin is not a good thing. You can do anything you want to your body in the name of religion, but don't try and pretend that it is good for you.

To all the people saying that an uncircumsised penis is just as safe as a circumsised one if they clean it regularly are speaking rubbish.
They found that people with circumsised penis's are up to 8 times less likely to catch HIV from 1 on 1 sex.
They found evidence that the HIV virus targets specific cells from the inner surface of the foreskin. These cells possess HIV receptors, making this area particularly susceptible to infection.
The research was based on Ugandan Aids sufferers

gosh, i'm guessing a lot of babies bled to death when they first started infant penis mutalation -i hope it didn't take too long before they realized it was better to wait a little over a week before chopping bit of their children off.
Abraham did not pick the eighth day after many centuries of trial-and-error experiments. Neither he nor any of his company from the ancient city of Ur in the Chaldees ever had been circumcised. It was a day picked by the Creator of vitamin K.

I think...and I find it a bit disturbing that I had to ponder this...that maybe the sucking part is supposed to be a bit like cleaning the wound. You know, like when you cut your finger a little and you suck it to get rid of the blood?
...it also has a ridged band of peripenic muscles that protects the urinary tract from contaminants, and an undersurface lined with mucocutaneous tissue found nowhere else on the body, which contains ectopic glands that produce natural emollients and antibacterial proteins similar to those found in mother's milk. With its frenar ridges and its thousands of nerve endings, the foreskin not only protects the glans, which in an intact male is extremely sensitive, it also accounts for roughly one-third of the penis' sexual perceptivity.

I don't recall Him answering such questions.
You'll be meeting Him one day . . . perhaps you'll have a few seconds to ask Him.
