It is an age-old debate…religion…who is right, who is wrong, are deities even real at all. In this paper, the author takes all the argument and rolls it up nicely, by pointing out all the actual flaws. Though he utilizes Christianity as the antagonist, it transcends to all religions. It’s not a put down, but enlightenment to what we are truly placing our beliefs upon. Even the most ardent Christian should read this paper without being insulted, for it may even confirm his/her faith more so. As the author points out, no matter the faith one professes, more power to them.
The piece is written employing the Bible’s own scripture, so it is hard to argue against, since the debater is confronted with what he is trying to defend, is also the source of the offense. Never degrading, but full of wit, it entices the reader to reason.
As an introduction through evolutionary processes, the author conveys his own thoughts in his attempts of revealing religion’s origins through sex. Imagine that! After a quick course on primitive Hebrew history, under topics titled as Genocidetite, Did God Create Evil and Sexual Discourse, the author goes into depth on what the Bible really implies, but more so, specifically states.
There is something to ponder on all 39 pages of this paper typed in 12-size font. Here is a tidbit quote, “Even flatulence makes its appearance where Isaiah likens his poots to the musical quality of a harp Isaiah 16:11.”
New International Version (NIV)
11 My heart laments for Moab like a harp,
my inmost being for Kir Hareseth.
New King James Version (NKJV)
11 Therefore my heart shall resound like a harp for Moab, And my inner being for Kir Heres.
King James Version (KJV)
11Wherefore my bowels shall sound like an harp for Moab, and mine inward parts for Kirharesh.
These are just 3 of many "versions" of the Word of God and I fail to see your interpretation of inmost being, inward parts or even bowels as a "poot"...a bit of a stretch don't you think?

Howdy Anonymous, apologies for taking so long to reply, but I just now noticed your comment. I'll have to start observing my older posts more often I reckon.ReplyDelete
My guess is that you are a Baptist and most fundamental Baptist churches follow only the translation of the King James...so why quote variant Bible reinterpretations?
God's word is God's word for then, now and will be. It is not up to newer bible version renderings. These new Bibles not only change words, they paraphrase sentencing structure just to make the reading easier and less offensive.
The King James version is thrice over a reinterpretation itself, while the American KJV is four times, but it is the oldest one we got closest to God's so-professed words. God knows how to say heart and doesn't need someone to conveniently say he meant this, by changing bowels to heart simply for modern day tastes.
This is merely a bait and switch approach.
Modernizing Bible language so we can understand it better and appeal more to our senses, in reality changes the true sense of a passage, and by altering it corrupts the former manuscripts.
KJV Is. 16:11 is what it is coming from the mouth of Isiah. We could argue on it till our britches require patching on this e-mail tag yore it.
But, if you go to your preacher and ask him, you'll come out accepting and believing more of what it actually says.
I bet that the sound of flatulence will roar back again ever more.
Yore Pal Always,
