Re: Olden day vs Modern day
Sorry, Taeth, you were doing really well until then. Pele was a true modern footballer in terms of speed, power, endurance, technique, professionalism etc. He did 100m in about 12 seconds (then!) He was at his peak in the late 60s, early 70s but could walk onto a pitch today and compete in all the areas mentioned above.

If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?
