Thanks Gamasutra for this blog. I am a science guy, so history is a sore spot. It's a nice eye opener to learn about the slave industry.

That said, what do people think about the idea, in the Bible, that in order to be great in Heaven, you have to be a slave to all? Is this illogical? In a way, it makes sense to me because God's power is revealed in His powerlessness, ie.. death through humility on the cross.
