Why did the 10 commandments need to be put on TWO Tablets.
Because they had a headache AND they didn't want to get pregnant.
Because they were just coming out of their caves from the stone age, back then. Kind of like coming out of the closet, today and paper had not been invented well enough.
Then, the smartest man in the cave, created religion.
Perhaps they were too heavy to carry down the mountain?
The reason the 10 Commandments were on two tablets is because the first four commandments deal with our relationship with God, the other six have to do with our relationship with one another. :-)
Because the tablets they were written on was not big enough to be placed on one. Just my thought. That is how it looked in the movie, " The Ten Commandments.
Originally there were 15 on 3 tablets according to a Mel Brooks documentary I saw years ago.
Think about it, you can be funnier.
Take your time, then please try again.
They were made big and in two pieces, so they would be harder to steal.
Thou shall, not steal
Just in cause, nail down those huge stone tablets anyways and kill any one who tries.
Wow’s two sins don't not make a righteous
How about: Kill someone by bludgeoning them with one of the tablets, steal the other tablet, use the name of "the lord/thy God" in vain when doing in it; and say nasty things about your mother and father as you run away to find a married honey you've been coveting, who is better your than your spouse; and then say a prayer to the God of houses to request that something terrible happen to your neighbor (who, by the way, you have slandered left and right just so everyone would hate him and maybe bludgeon him with the tablet you left at the crime scene) so you can have his house and stuff. (Oh - and do all this on a Sunday, of course ).
There was actually three tablets with 15 commandments until Moses droped one and settled for 10 commandments.
Please credit me as a source or I will report you for plagiarism. I'm not sure what the punishment is, but I bet it's pretty cruel and unusual.
I googled the 15 commandments and low and behold -- there were originally 15.
This is funny, or at least I thought so...
So does anyone follow all of the Ten Commandments that are left somewhere.

I, KLH, stated that It is logical to follow The Ten Commandments because they are based on self preservation. Righteous Atheist, however, responded with this rebuttal:"So - you don't know what 10% of the ten commandments even mean. Possibly the worst selection of ten morals to...

Here are the comparisons between the 10 Commandments and he Book of the Dead:Book of the Dead: "I have done away sin for thee and not acted fraudulently or deceitfully. I have not belittled God. I have not inflicted pain or caused another to weep. I have not murdered or given such an order. I...

None, they didn't exist for them, and technically I think breaking the tablets into pieces is like repealing them.

Are the 10 commandment applicable today? Are they applicable to non-Jews? Are they applicable to women? I ask because the bible says Jesus said one needs to follow them to get into heaven, but when I read them a few things stand out that makes me think they are not applicable to non-Jews or...
