God and Son

Poking the bloated corpse of religion with a pointy stick to hear it fart.

The Bible. Redux. 3D. Return of the Christ. Sometimes they come back again again…

on November 5, 2012

This is from a meme doing the rounds at the moment…

The King James version of the New testament was completed in 1611 by 8 members of the church of England. There were (and still are) no original texts to translate. The oldest manuscripts we have were written hundreds of years after the last apostle died. There are over 8,000 of these old manuscripts, with no two alike. The king James translators used none of these anyway. Instead, they edited previous translations to create a version their king and parliament would approve.

So, 21st century Christians believe the “word of god” is a book edited in the 17th century from 16th century translations of 8,000 contradictory copies of 4th century scrolls that claim to be copies of lost letters written in the 1st century.

That’s not faith, it is insanity.

Now, it may be inaccurate, but the basis is still valid…
