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 love it with butter, and a little salt!)

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"
