Oh, drat. Well, atleast the bible was an interesting read. I mean, really. That thing is filthier than a Harlequin romance novel. It's got incest, rape, murder, rape of a corpse that you just murdered, rape rape, licking a salty woman, nuclear warfare, chimeras...

It's like the ultimate fantasy novel.

Sure, but people got too stupid over it and started taking it seriously.

It's like the Sandman comic books and the weird fans that series has. No, Sandman is not the best comic book ever, and Neil Gaiman isn't that great, either. Stop proselytizing and trying to convert me, damn it!

The Song of Solomon is my favorite thing to quote to uptight, elderly fundamentalists. Scatologial references in the bible really get their goat.

"It is a great shame that Bibles have been removed from rooms and very inappropriate to have been replaced by an explicit erotic novel," Woodcock told The Westmorland Gazette.

That's pretty funny.

The Hotel Nikko in Atlanta in the mid 90's was owned by the Japaneese. They had a fantastic resturant with a 16 course menu--about 90 bucks for one...and we shared it, with some other small dishes a great Hotel at the time.

In their rooms they had "Sayings of the Buddha" instead of Giddion Bibles. Which was cool.

That's what happens when you have a translation of a translation. It loses all of the original poetry :/

Not just that, but also that it is a collection of different stories compiled at different times by many different authors. Therefore it has no flow.

I saw a woman reading Fifty Shades of Grey in the airport yesterday. She was precisely what I would have imagined a fan of that book would look like.

Ambivalence: I stayed at a hotel when i was a kid that had a book on buddhism instead of the bible. But I was too young to "get it".


When I used to have to stay at hotels a lot on business, I amused myself by flipping through the bible thing they always left in a random drawer and I'd write all over the pages wherever I thought it was bullshiat.

/Which most of it is.

Actually, the first two Gor novels weren't all that bad. The rest go downhill pretty quickly, almost to 50 Shades - level bad.

I don't know about Lazarus, but Jesus was a reverse zombie. Instead of eating YOUR flesh, you ate of HIS.

Ah, yes. The famous donkey penis Bible passage.

Oh, and the pedophilia. I don't remember the parts with the sex with prepubescent children.

"I was thinking originally of putting in a book by Ayn Rand - 'Atlas Shrugged' was my first thought," Denby told NBC News.

"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings The Bible and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs a zombie."

mamoru: But really poorly written. It doesn't matter how good the story is when the writing style is utter garbage.


Thank you. Though the arguments about translation and being a collection are proper excuses, and I would say the story is in a sad state as well, something irks me about people saying the Bible is some great piece of literature. Of historical and cultural significance, of course, but
 
2012-07-25 07:13:04 AM  
bah! I was gonna try some line about it being 50 shades of grey. Nuts.
 
2012-07-25 07:13:21 AM  
I think the important thing to note here is 50 SHADES IS PART OF A TRILOGY! A F*CKING TRILOGY!!!1!

I disagree, which brings me to my point...Can't we replace it with Good Omens?
