It has been quite a while since I last posted my thoughts for anyone else to see. Frankly, with all that's been going on, I guess I didn't feel the need to do so. Self-delusions about the value of my words aside, there are times which writing helps me think. If others share a little in that thinking process... well, the human race already operates on herd mentality. It's time I partook of some of it.

The Constitution and the Bible

I find it sad to hear that in this day and age that such obviousness about the nature of things is overlooked in favor of what idealism one brings about from an object. Namely, the Bible. The original bible was written as small little books, disparate and at completely different times. The Old Testament, the Book of Mark, the Book of Luke, and so on. The Bible as we know it today wasn't brought about in one cohesive manifestation. It also wasn't written in the language we speak and understand today. We can even surmise that it wasn't even free of bias, though I'm sure some would say "the hand of God guided those transcribing the Bible and kept it's word true." However, "God's Word" has been misused and twisted in so many ways in the past, from the Spanish Inquisition to the Salem witch trials to name a couple. These two examples were religiously motivated acts that I would wager most would consider abhorations to current religious teachings. It pains me to try and comprehend people who look at this 'God inspired' work of man as the literal truth on life and purpose in the Universe.
