Thanks Cat, very Nice! Will have to add that to my FB wall.
And Napoleon, the writers may have even considered that what they wrote originally was absolute truth, though the bible has been revised and re-edited a few times by more modern scribes who kept the original misconceptions, knowing full well they were wrong. So misconceptions became Lies by lack of care in reinterpretation.
To push an ancient, obvious misconception as if it were truth is lying.
http://www.bibviz.com/ shows a beautiful interactive graph of the web of contradictions in the Bible. There are also interactive charts of the density of different types of bogosity (historical/scientific errors, cruelty and violence, misogyny, etc.) in the different books.
Perfect! I never understood the purpose of putting one's hand on a book to swear, avow, or affirm anything, Did people think they would be struck by lightning or something if they lied? (In California jurors do NOT have to put their hands on a book, or say "S'whelp me Anybody" when they take their oath. At least not in the courtroom I was in. Maybe it's up to the judge.)
