Totally Agree !!!
And hey you cant argue with that Yahoo, he thinks he knows it all and only what he know is true despite scientific evidence that says other wise...
Cheers

Same as most all creationists then? Never mind, I like a good argument particularly when I know the answers. What Yahoo thinks is irrelevant to fact

<quoted text>the King James Version?!?
the bible that was translated for a totally homosexual king that ruled by divine right...but...his god was against homosexuality...but.. ruled by divine right..but...
yikes! the theological conundrums that logic brings to religions...
The KJV, compiled by committee from an amalgamation of the previous myriad of different versions including the Bishop’s Bible, Tyndale’s bible, Coverdale’s bible, Matthew’s bible and Wilchurch’s bible in order to create a definitive babble.

Again

Some of the rules for that compilation were
* The ordinary Bible, read in the church, commonly called the Bishop’s Bible, to be followed, and as little altered as the original will permit.
* The division of the chapters to be altered, either not at all, or as little as may be, if necessity so require.
* Every particular man of each company to take the same chapter of chapters; and having translated or amended them severally by himself, where he thinks good, all to meet together, to confer what they have done, and agree for their part what shall stand.
* If any company, upon the review of the book so sent, shall doubt or differ upon any places, and therewithal to send their reasons; to which if they consent not, the difference to be compounded at the general meeting, which is to be the chief persons of each company, at the end of the work.
* When any place of special obscurity is doubted of, letters to be directly by authority to send to any learned in the land for his judgment in such a place.
* These translations to be used when they agree better with the text than the Bishop’s Bible, viz. Tyndale’s, Coverdale’s, Matthew’s, Wilchurch’s,* Geneva.”

Basically cart blanch to put in what ever juts so long as someone else agreed?

And now there are now more than 50 different versions in English translation alone

The guys sexuality was the least of the problems

Shit.
What "new discoveries that here to fore (sic) was thought impossible and US patents" are attributed to to your private, little philosophy?
Pumping water uphill by its own power through a patterned system that uses timed cycles to accomplish this was once thought impossible, but it works just like SCP predicted.

The noun "Siphon Pump" is sometimes spelled as "Syphon Pump" as well and it has been redefined due to new discoveries.

think he has even a clue as to how much energy went into getting that water to flow downhill? probably tapping one/one-thousandth of it

perpetual in that PT Barnum was right about the perpetual flow of suckers...
