Or are Aaronic priests descended from alien visitors?

I remember seeing an interview (and reading it in an article somewhere) with Leonard Nimoy. He is Jewish as far as I know, and when they were trying to come up with a unique type of gesture as a part of Vulcan culture, he pulled that one out of his memories of services from when he was little. Some of the people who have played Vulcans apparently weren't very 'adept' at it, had to get their fingers separated off camera before shooting farewell scenes :)

I dunno, sometimes I get totally lost in WikiPedia, and have no idea where I'm at, how I got there or even what in the hell I was researching in the first place. Hyperlinks are the work of daDebil!
