The bible was written, and then rewritten, and then edited, and then re-edited, and then translated from dead languages, the re-re-translated, then re-edited, then re-re-re-edited, and then re-translated, then given to kings for them to take their favorite parts out then re-edited, then given to the pope for him to approve, then re-re-translated, then re-re-written, re-edited, re-translated, re-edited again. All based on stories that were told orally thirty to ninety years after they happened to people who didn’t know how to write. So I guess what I’m saying is the bible is literally the world’s oldest game of telephone.
