Default Re: OT: Bible Discussion (Split from Real World Sensitivities)

As said I am going to bow out of this conversation as you have reraised an earlier point. No matter generally which God is followed there is more than one interpretation of his word religion following him. So you are accepting someones previous interpretation of it who is in fact accepting that the written word was interpretead & passed down correctly. If you disagree with parts of it then you are now adding another interpretation yours is just not the official one so does not make print.
Therefore you should throw most of the book away & just take the underlying themes & as for those people that believe it should be taken literaly even translating Old English into Modern English has its problems. If a language is structured diffrently it becomes even harder. Now chuck in variations for diffrent regions which would have been more varied in a time without travel communication & I can see them as no more than guides. If you add in poaching of bits from earlier religions its hard to see how it was not fudged in some way after all it was left to man to collate it.
If you really wanted to be pessamistic you could say man often misinterprets woman, a smart person often has trouble understanding one less so & vica versa even on fairly basic stuff. Taking this as a premise the whole message could be a bit off.
Slightly diffrent subject but whats the point of SETI if we have disparitys of understanding in our own society we are really going to understand an alien aren't we.

Embedded YouTube clip which features a christian parody of Sir Mix-a-Lot's 1992 hit: "Baby Got Back".
