Re the posting of "Green Information":

(a) The quote on the home page of "Green Information" reads :

"Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you." Prince Kropotkin

(b) Translation from Arameic, from Book of Shabath, Division of Holidays, Talmud (early AD compilation of post biblical Jewish law):

A man came to…. Hillel ( a known teacher ) and asked to learn the whole Torah (Jewish instruction) while standing on one foot. Said Hillel : " whatever you do not like do not do to others ".

Hillel lived during the first century AD.
