    Hi guys: I found this whole segment very amusing, I never realized how you could make the Bible a satire & still be sensible. Maybe kids could read your statements in Sunday School, & argue it back & forth, to study if the Bible is logical or not. It would let everyone have a chance to explore religious literature from another perspective, (not MY WAY or the HIGHWAY). It does not destroy anyone's faith, but examines how much of the Bible may have been "allegory" or simplified to the most basic explanation. After all, how many PhD's were wandering around in the desert, between 100 B.C. & 95 A.D? It could be that they wrote things to appeal to a semi-literate population, simple sheep-herders, carpenters, weavers, wheat farmers, & chariot makers, or scribes & laundry persons. So most stories in the scriptures had to be "simplified" for common folk.

    Heck, they did not know any science, like what makes the sun rise? Or what makes it rain or snow? So the Bible had to be in a simplified form, with a miraculous explanation, & no real knowledge of "cause & effect". Just shortly after the cave man.

    Eternal, I don't like to repeat myself, but only humans created "bibles"; no one in outerspace or on mars wrote this stupidity. At least Jesus( if he was a "god") should have told the "humans" that the world was not flat and that Australia existed with strange created creatures who "hopped" as well the North and South America's with its grizzly's and wolves. So this proves that this guy was just a "human" with all its shortcomings and nothing else. Sorry to say all writing is only done by "humans" not by "ghosts". If you look at what the "Hubble" found lately in space, then you and others should realize that we are absolutely "nothings" in space and have no value in space. We as "humans" created "god's" to soften the blow of death and exploited such for power and wealth for certain people. All of this only find place on this self-contained rock; nowhere else. "Evilgelicals" are absolute naïve dumb people who refuse to think; space is so huge that a human brain can not comprehend such; science proved that, so why put in the effort to make up silly "human created" stories and believe those.

    Most Christians don't want to think they are decedents of black African's let alone Chimps!

    My theory is if it looks like a Chimp, makes noises like a Chimp, has the intellect of a Chimp then it must be a Fundamentalist Christian, most likely from Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri North or South Carolina, Florida or Virginia.

    Sorry if I've left anyone out.

    ha ha ha --- My husband loved what you guys wrote. He never goes near a church, except for a wedding or funeral. He once was raised as a Catholic (enough said) ---- & that makes him 4 out of 4, in this generation's "husband" category. A whole big gaggle of "lapsed" Catholics. But I have to give my spouse some credit -- he cheerfully went out & bought me a really great Bible a year ago. Enlarged print, silver-edged pages, many indexes, words of Christ printed in "red" --- the whole enchilada.

    We both are a bit excited to find out something new, that the priests never told us as children. Like the Garden of Eden is in Iraq, (formerly known as Babylon), & that the Euphrates River runs right through it. So when Georgie Bush bombed the hell out of Iraq, he was actually bombing the Garden of Eden. (The Garden was where mankind began, & after Georgie's bombs, it may well be the cause of mankind's Ending). That Iraq War may very well lead us into the Armageddon (End of the World).

    I was going to list many of the sources, but it is getting late, so will try to get back to this later : ) Some of it is in Genesis, the first book of the Bible -- very appropriate, don't you agree? The beginning is in the first book?

    Eternal, still in la la land? Sorry the garden Eden never existed when was Genesis written? I guess written way beyond the Dinosaur area. thus nothing even then could be proven, other than "writings"; the same as for talking snakes or taking a rib from someone and make another person from it; ask Carson if that is possible. But yeah that is only 6000 years ago according to the "church", right? Can you imagine that within 6000 years, from two people, it has expanded into billions of people even on continents of which Jesus had no knowledge. We must have sr......d as rabbits in those few years; but of course the "church" can explain that. Iraq never was a "paradise" and never will be. I guess Jesus forgot to tell you about "climate change" throughout the history of the world, as well that this globe started as a clumb of lava millions of years ago. Anyway the "apple" import from Iraq is blooming; ask Adam and the "rib" lady Eve. You make me laugh. Kind of funny that in your human/printed "bible" the word "Jesus" was printed in "red"; so he must have been an Republican; congratulations.

    Anyway the "writer" of "Genesis" lived in la la land, if a "bible" already starts with such utterly nonsense then the rest is also fantasy ask any scientist; also for a Trump or a coal miner, "paradise" are two different things.

    It depends on where the writer ever had been on the "world" to know what "paradise" is or was in human terms. Just having an "apple" tree and "talking snakes" is not paradise for me.
