the new testament

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 down hundreds of years AFTER the last apostile died.  There are over 8,000 of these old manuscripts, with no two alike.

The King Jame translators used NONE of these anyway.  Instead, they edited previous translations to create a version their king and Parliament would aprove.

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 the lost letters written in the 1st century.

This is not faith to me.  It’s insanity.

The inquisition no longer exists my good people!  You are now allowed to expand your mind and awaken your inner being without being labeled a heretic and burned at the stake.

~thanx for the inspiration amina!

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous :)
