Well I never got to see J.E.J. read the bible. Was it like the typical spoon-feeding session where they only read the few lovie-dovie verses, or did he get to the nitty gritty and read about all the murder, genocide, incest and rape commanded by god??

I missed the first episode of the show. Is it a weekly series, and when does it air? Sometimes I feel like Lisa Simpson, and other times I feel like Ralph.

I can see it now (imagine Jones intoning this):

 

"I am not your father, Jesus!"

His voice sounds much more majestic without the filter they pumped it through, for the films.  Watch him in Field of Dreams, or something.

What about James Earl Jones?  I swear, for the reading of the Bible that he did, they should have marketed it as 'The Bible: as read by the Voice of God'.

Because WLC is a tit and doesn't understand how "time" works.

 

D'oh!

Yeah Michael, I've run into this sort of thing several times, in my discussions at work, along with all of the grotesque misunderstandings of Evolution.  The Big Bang is not creation ex nihilo.  It's just an expansion event.

Not really spam, if it's topical.

Hello, sorry for the spam, but it's for a good cause. Along with some friends I'm launching a website called "rational society"(www.sociedaderacional.org). The site is in Portuguese but you can translate the page to the language you wish, and send texts for publication.I invite everyone to visit us. thanks
