Some of those surprised me. I thought they were completely primitive, and turns out they don`t even milk their cows by hand!!!!! *disappointed*

I went to Amish country for my honeymoon. They have wonderful, peaceful plces there to stay...what I respect so much is how the women are conservative and respectful. Life is not as fast or nearly as scandalous...
It is nice that some of the values and morals or the past are still preserved in a quiet, beautiful way, such as in Amish country.

As a side note, they do have a phone in case of dire emergencies and also they are allowed to ride in cars, as long as they are not the drivers.

There is just so many fascinating aspects of the Amish and their lifestyle and relgion. But I do have to add, it is quite amazing how ignorant many people in this world are, as mildly reflected in this forum by most.

actually osprey, a high percentage of the teens go back to the Amish after their rumspringa(sp?). if you think about it, theyre risking a lot by leaving..going out into the world with an 8th grade education and little or no money. and if they leave, they cant ever see their family again..
i for one dont get the religion. anything that says you cant go to heaven or ever see your family again if you leave the religion and community sounds a little too messed up for me.

It must be so hard to keep the Amish kids to stay within the community when they grow up, unless of course they don`t know what goes on in the rest of the country at all.

llehctim - they say it on the site. The people who made the site are not Amish, but are closely affiliated.

Umm, if they shun technologies to the extent that they seem to, why were they allowed to make that website?

I`m 99% sure they have running water, but alas no internet. They do have plenty of appliances, they just run on propane instead of electricity.
