A number of years ago, there was a story in Analog where the question raised was whether or not a genetically engineered pig was kosher. The animal had been modified to chew its cud-- the reason was that it increased the nutritional value of the meat or would somehow increase the food supply, I forget the details. It was an interesting example of how science and technology can upend social assumptions.
Which leads to bizarre (to many Jews and non-Jews alike) cheats or work-arounds like the Shabbat elevator.
Wow. Reading stuff like that just makes me even happier to be an atheist; it's just so much easier.
I'm wondering, do they expect God to be fooled by this bullshit?

GOD: "Hey, you weren't allowed to operate electric switches. And I KNOW that this means you can't take the elevator on Shabbat. I invented the elevator, I am the creator of all things!!!! You tried to fool me? I dare you! I double-dare you, fool me again!!!"
A movie aiming low should not be praised for hitting that target.
