Does every post on Fark have to be misleading?

Fyodorov did introduce movable type to Russia and did publish bibles. If there are only 250 of these know to exist I would think 9 grand for such a book is a good price.

i thought commies are atheist? what is the bible doing in russia anyway?
damn commies, will do anything for 15min fame.

Looks like Pravda.ru's hired a proofreader, I could actully understand wtf they were saying this time. Impressive. Must be because most of their traffic probably comes from Fark.

I'm guessing they only skimmed the article after reading the headline. The headline made me wonder if it was satire or not.
 
2003-03-03 11:52:03 PM
I'd buy THAT for a dollar!

Bible, I love religion! Save me jebus!

Hmmm...you could use the pages to roll some nice doobies...

Ironically, this first printed version of the Bible mentions that Jesus was the friend of Jim Morrison, not Jimi Hendrix.


This is the End, my only friend the End ...

Pushing me further and further away from religion is this stuff. Whether serious or not. Bad Religion!

Couldn't read the article but
Woohoo! B.R. kicks ass!

I got nothin.

This is Pravda. It's turned into a freakin' tabloid.
 
2003-03-04 12:02:12 AM
What a useless news source. :) Do they ever post anything credible?
 
2003-03-04 12:04:39 AM
Madpiper: I was under the impression that Pravda always was a tabloid.
 
2003-03-04 12:04:52 AM
I wanted to be able to read this article, it sounded funny, but it wouldn't load. I'd have had to download some alternate text jobbie.

It was a tradition in old times to insert information about the most important events on blank pages of books. But the only entry inserted in the Bible discovered in Severodvinsk concerned Yury Gagarin's space flight.

Also a tradition here to keep a family bible with newspaper clippings of obituaries, births, etc.

Is that quote letter-for-letter, cuz if it is, "Yuri" is spelled wrong. Not that it matters, I just happened to notice.
 
2003-03-04 12:09:31 AM
ummmmmmmm. right.

John 3:16
Romans 1 & 6-12
 
2003-03-04 12:12:40 AM
The only scripture worth quoting is Isiah 36:12.
 
2003-03-04 12:13:15 AM
Uh, I don't think the bible mentions the spaceflight. I think it meant that someone had entered it in as "an important date."
 
2003-03-04 12:16:10 AM
John 3:16

Wow, people referencing Scripture? Cool.

Are these Pravda links supposed to be funny?
Cause seriously, I don't get it.
 
2003-03-04 12:29:42 AM
Man, I always get excited reading the headline, then I see the Pravda icon and all credibility flies out the window.
 
2003-03-04 12:33:44 AM
That's real horror show.
 
2003-03-04 12:37:47 AM
"Mentions space flight"... bah, poster is a asshat who needs to go back for more schoolin'
 
2003-03-04 12:47:15 AM
"'Yuri' is spelled wrong"

If you want to be ultra-accurate, the best way to transliterate the name Yuri into American English would be "Yuriy." It's common for Russian words that end in 'iy' (also spelled as 'ij') to be shortened to just 'y.' It's not an incorrect spelling, it's just an alternate transliteration scheme.

If Jews got the laws, and Jesus taught us to think beyond the laws, why do Christians always quote scripture as if it is the law?

I don't think I'll ever quite understand fundamentalists.

Edhellen, cut-n-paste.
 
2003-03-04 12:56:03 AM
cut-and-paste what?
 
2003-03-04 12:58:06 AM
cut-and-paste what?

From the article, Yury, remember?
 
2003-03-04 12:58:40 AM
GODDAMNIT read the article, its not like the bible mentions spaceflight. Joe Shomevov the owner wroter in it the back in accordance with the tradition of mentioning important happenings.

Exactly. "Christians" don't do that, fundamentalists do. Fundamentalists may choose different religions to use as their tools, but they are basically all the same. And they don't represent the vast majorities of those religions.
 
2003-03-04 12:59:16 AM
I couldn't get into the article, it wouldn't let me link to it without making me download some Russian text dealie.
 
2003-03-04 12:59:47 AM
A Pravda link with a misleading headline. It's like two times the suck.

I think you're on the right track. Problem was (still is) that man had started to worship the law itself, which was never the intent of the law. Like asking, was man made for the Sabbath, or was the Sabbath made for the man. Laws were made to assist man, and not to enslave him.

Just for the benefit of you all above who couldn't/didn't read the article: A man in a poor area of the North sold a 1581 bible for $96. Pravda think it may be worth much more than that, as it is an example of the first printed bibles in Russia. Someone had written the date of Gagarin's spaceflight somewhere in the book. The end.

The bible was probably hot.

Oh yeah, this thread is for Christian farkers only. Everyone else can close there eyes.

The law was given so that trespass would increase, and we would see the need all the more for the Lord's grace. Romans 5:20

Christians will "get it", others doubtful.
When I was new, I hard time with the concept, but it is clearer now.

Thank you, Ivan I've been trying to remember the Russian for "There's no news in truth, there is no truth in news" for a while. One of my favorite Soviet era jokes from Russia.

It also includes the famous first page of the Bible, often missing from other versions. It reads:

"This is a work of fiction. Any resemblance between persons or places in this book and any actual persons or places, living or dead, is purely coincidental. The authors are not responsible for misrepresentations of this material by others."

Christianity is based on the premise that God goofed... He gave Laws and later He changed his mind because they were too harsh. Personally, the idea of a God who can't get it right on the first try is kinda pathetic. The simplest way to avoid all of the problems inherent in rejecting the Law is not to reject it. If, as Christians do, you accept that the Law was valid at some point, then you have to justify why it was taken back.

So we are left with Christianity: A religion that believes in the infallibility of the pope but not of God.

Discusses this with a missionary once. After the blank look (well, blanker look) came into his eyes, i said "Thanks for the thought, but I think I'll stick with my Judaism."
 
2003-03-04 09:47:31 AM
I know, I know. Only Catholics have a pope. But the point remains.

Ack. The Old Covenant laws foreshadowed Christ. They were still in effect until His death. In fact, the moment He died on the cross the curtain that sealed off the holiest of holy places in the temple ripped down the middle. That's when the New Covenant took effect.

Ever notice the Sabbath is not required in the New Covenant? It's still good to have a day off here and there but it's not required.
