I have picked corn and you do not need to cut anything you do a twist and push and the stalk snaps cleanly.
The reference on that link I posted did mention harvesters using some kind of cutting tool; this may have been to expedite the harvesting process, or it may be that cutting was essential to harvest the 'corn'(or whatever it was), but this is all just me guessing.

I swear, this is like handing someone a flashlight and watching them bounce around a dark room anyway because they refuse to turn it on.

I already gave you the answer about the bible and corn.

Because bible events did not take place in the middle east. They took place right here in the Americas.

The King James translators were actually referring almost always to either wheat or barley when they used corn to translate various original Hebrew words of the Old Testament, such as:

'daw-gawn'(which means wheat),
'bar'(which means any standing grain, but most often wheat),
'sheh-ber'(which means kernels of grain, usually wheat),

and Greek words of the New Testament, such as:
'spor-ee-mos'(meaning a field of grain),
'stack-oos'(meaning a head of grain),
and 'see-tah'(which means wheat),

seeing all humans are related it stands to reason different migrating families would have taken corn with them....as the word 'corn' apparently is used in different countries for different crops..its only been singled out in modern days to mean a 'particular' crop.

When pagan Julius Caesar wrote about his conquest of Gaul and invasion of Britain around 55 BC, he used the word 'corn' to describe grains like wheat, oats or barley.

There was no maize type corn in pre-Columbian Europe, Africa or Asia.
Corn, just like potatoes and tobacco, came from America.

MOST translations say "ears of grain" or "stalks of grain", instead of "ears of corn"

The word "corn" used to refer to any grain, but especially wheat. When the early English settlers came to the Americas, they needed a word for the new grain that the native Americans ate. They called it "Indian corn," which translated into our common English, meant "Indian grain." The word "Indian" was eventually dropped, and maize is now called "corn." Here is an explanation from a website that has more information:

The process is even more clearly shown in the history of such words as corn and shoe. Corn, in orthodox English, means grain for human consumption, and especially wheat, e. g., the Corn Laws. The earliest settlers, following this usage, gave the name of Indian corn to what the Spaniards, following the Indians themselves, had called ma�z. The term appears in Bradford's "History of Plymouth Plantation" (1647) and in Mourt's "Relation" (1622). But gradually the adjective fell off, and by the middle of the eighteenth century maize was called simply corn and grains in general were called breadstuffs. Thomas Hutchinson, discoursing to George III in 1774, used corn in this restricted sense, speaking of "rye and corn mixed." "What corn?" asked George. "Indian corn," explained Hutchinson, "or, as it is called in authors, maize." (from Changed Meanings, http://www.bartleby.com/185/10.html )

Beyondhyperbole looked up the words in the Greek (and yes they do mean grain) but corn is mentioned all the way back in Genesis, which would behoove a search of the Hebrew - Beyondhyperbole is still right - the Hebrew also means grain, but here is a link to ancient Egyptian pictographs of harvesters reaping corn (which includes the phrase 'ears of corn', which is the same phrase as in Genesis 41:5, when Joseph was in Egypt):
http://www.reshafim.org.il/ad/egypt/timelines...
Genesis 41:5 from the Jewish Hebrew to English translation:

He fell asleep and dreamt a second time, and behold! seven ears of grain were sprouting on a single stalk - healthy and good.

'corn" is the Christian translation - not what the Hebrew text actually said.
