He should have made it a choose-your-own-adventure book:

-> If you'd like Samson to smite the Philistines by tying 100 foxes together and setting them on fire, turn to page 117.

-> If you'd like Samson to go biblical on a pagan temple using the jawbone of an ass, turn to page 843.

talkertopc: I am an Atheist and I am impressed by what the man did.
I am not impressed by the ignorance and bigotry of some of contributors to this thread.

We're all hurt.  Impressing you is very important to us.

INeedAName: Great Janitor: Pointy Tail of Satan: You mean the distorted, inaccurate Bible in English, written for those too lazy to learn to read in Hebrew, Latin and Greek?

I think they mean the Bible post Council of Nicea where they decided what was going to be in the Bible as we know it today, and what was going be considered non-canon.  A friend of my explained to me when I was in my teens (older family friend, not another teenager) that prior to the Council of Nicea the Christian Church actually believed in reincarnation.  The Council of Nicea ditched it because if your followers thought that they had another life, then they could screw around in this life and use the next one for a chance to get into Heaven.  Tell them that you have only one life and now they are determined to get into Heaven on their one and only chance.  He was also one of the first people to explain to me the possibility that Mary Magdaline wasn't a whore but a rather important woman in the church around the time of Christ.  The Council of Nicea purposely reduced her to a whore to keep women subservient.  Something that would be a bit difficult if the Bible explained that Christ had a woman who was as equal as the men in his company.   The Council also pretty much deleted everything from the holy texts that they didn't like or agreed with or could pretty much threaten their political standing.

I didn't know Dan Brown was on Fark

While it's wonderful to have people in your life to educate you on things, did you bother to ever look any of this up? My wife just finished her first year of seminary and the amount of times during the week I find out that something someone once told me about the Bible turns out to blatantly false, is pretty interes

Slappy McLongstockings: INeedAName: My wife just finished her first year of seminary

Does your wife appreciate the passages in your book that give permission to kill your insolent child?

Her body, her choice.

So THAT'S what Steve Gutenberg has been up to these days.  Figured the Stonecutters would find him a gig eventually.
