Removed claim that the Golden Rule was "blatantly plagiarized from earlier Greek sources". If it's true, I'd like to see a source. Variants of the Golden Rule were present not just in Greece. Egypt had a great deal of influence in ancient Israel. Ancient links between India and Israel have been established. in addition, it is present in the Old Testament ("eye for an eye", having a Mesopotamian origin). There's little reason to assume it came from Greece. In addition, earlier versions (Greek or otherwise) do not state, "Love your neighbor," but instead tend to focus on actions, so I question that it's blatant plagiarism - rather it is derivative. In all likelihood, it was a contemporary idea in which case, assuming not original (as a derivative) to Israel,it would have been of Roman origin. John Rogers 07:40, 6 December 2013 (CST)
