Maybe whoever wrote the bible didn't expect there to be such a high literacy rate in the future?

well, i'm thinking it was written for the priests, who'd then pass it along to the masses, since only the priests were literate until gutenberg's printing press made books less costly...?

Good site. The religious tend to gloss over the bad points in the bible, even though it's supposed to be the words of their god. It's like "ok god we believe in you but can you tone down the, genocide, misogyny, slavery parts and just stick to love and peace. Oh, but you can keep the whole homophobia part in, we like that."
