JuggleGeek: WordyGrrl: I saw a church signboard a while back that said "King James Version Has Never Been Revised." How odd. The very title tells you it's a revision, one made to satisfy a ruler who wanted his very own version of the Bible.

The first known book written to explain basic slight of hand magic was called Discoverie of Witchcraft.  The goal of that book was to show that magic isn't real, witches don't exist, etc.  King James didn't like that at all, so he had the book banned and they burned every copy they could find.

When someone burns books because he hates other people knowing the truth, it rather makes it hard for me to trust his "translation" of the bible.

Interesting stuff, indeed. You sent me off on a few searches about that King James Version. Apparently, he ordered that the "new translation" be strictly compatible with the ideologies of the Church of England at the time (i.e., anti-Puritan), and only allowed translators to use a handful of approved references while they did the job. Yeah, that says "control freak" among other things.
