Hi Glenn
In answer to :
"Why are there so many errors still in the Bible? The leaders of the religions have had hundreds of years to rid their Holy Book, their doctrines and their teachings of those things which are "dead giveaways" that the Bible and their religion itself is simply man made. Why have they not taken out those internal statements which expose their stories as being false? The reason is, because they haven't had to. The believers have been quieted and kept in servitude by the simple FEAR that to honestly and seriously study into these things would be to doubt, and to doubt is to SIN UNPARDONABLY. To sin this SIN is to lose their salvation and all of the good things which their religion has promised them for the future."

It would be pretentious to "correct" a religious book until the truest answers are known. I view the Bible as historical literature which contains
almost uniquely intense tales about real folks doing various yogas.
The paragraph above by Blaylock, which you cited,
ends on an accurate note I think. It seems a common enough occurance in politics too.
Human nature in groups is yet untamed by religion, science or anything almost. Abuse of power is rampant -- it's a fact of life, for most persons in most places, that various folks are abusing us in various ways -- whether by disinformation, scheming for private control of properly common property, or currency heists.

Any old book can be faulted for sure.
