Lolz. Scotland played rugby against SA not too long ago, a game that was played here. Some Bok supporter was holding a sign: "Our guys don't wear skirts"

I'm a winy bit turned on by the idea of a man wearing a kilt. The accent is a winy bit baffling, hey but who needs to talk!

"I did not mean to imply that Voltaire used these words verbatim and should be surprised if they are found in any of his works. They are rather a paraphrase of Voltaire's words in the Essay on Tolerance — "Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too."...Evelyn Beatrice Hall, 11 May 1935 in the Saturday Review.

The Bible has a talking animal smited into a snake, pillars of fire from the sky (Note, because of Elijah's prayer), stuff like that.
Now that is what we call "magic". Why? Because it fits the definition. You seem to think that this is some undiscovered natural law.
Anyways, so you believe those *supernatural* things happen, all because of a sick horse getting better? I am glad your horse did not die, but damn. It's a stretch
You're weird. Lol

I was asked about an answered prayer and I provided what I think was one.

It had nothing to do with biblical stories.

So before Jesus we had a deity able to perform incredible feats to prove his existence, like food from the sky, pillars of flame blastes to earth, talking animals. Now, after Jesus, we call it a miracle when a sick horse does not die?
You wanna knkw what I think? Remember the alien craze back in the 90's? Everybody and his brother saw a spaceship up close. Some were abducted and flew to the Belt of Orion. Now, in a world with cell phones, each one coming out with a camera as standard fitting, this suddenly stops. Do you lerhaps think those aliens are afraid not of our nuclear nissiles, but our cameras?
I can't speak for the aliens, but nuclear nissles scare the crap outta me :)

What makes the NIV "the most honest" version?
They were all "the most honest" versions.
The next version will be "the most honest" as well.(May Woden forbid another!)
We, you and I, have had similar exchanges pertaining to yesterday's science compared to today's science... exchanges where you all but admonished me for promoting that "Today, we know everything"... when I never said anything of the sort in the first place.(Does the name "Aristarchus" ring a bell?)
In the time since, thanks to Mac's suggested reading material, you seem to have developed a respect for a man named Democritus... from what you've told me, due to notions he had about the nature of matter thousands of years before atoms were discovered/confirmed.
He was correct, or at least headed in the right direction... in so much as he didn't actually present the world with the atom as it's understood today... instead, using a word contemporary to his day with a meaning suitable to the idea he was putting forth and from which the our word "atom" is derived.
With that being said...
Any ideas where the man stood on the subject of "the gods"?
BTW...
I'm not *trying* to say that you're saying that you know everything about something... specifically, which Bible version can be trusted and which can't... but, then again... you kind of *are* doing just that.
...and...
You seem to appreciate arguments from authority... past and present... thus, the imposition of that last question.
I am the biblical authority in this thread, I know what I'm talking about.

Just like scientific interpretation is better today than it was in 1610, so is biblical interpretation.

The English men that translated the first KJV got it close, real close. For their time (and what little resources they had) they did good enough. They got the Bible written in English in a way that the people of the time could understand.

But people speak English very differently now, so another interpretation was needed.

Couple that with instant worldwide communication and knowledge, the group of people that wrote the NIV had it easier to translate from Hebrew & Greek direct to today's English.

IMO - the NIV is one the best, most accurate translations in history.

Which do you prefer?...
The original NIV or the modified NIV?
They are virtually the same, only a 1% difference.

As we learn more, science books need to be updated, yes?

The same goes for the Bible.
