    Oh, I still have plenty of paper books. But I hope to sell off my library next year, including the bookcases.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    well calling the bible simply made up means you determined your personal opinion as fact.

    the bible itself has historically been shown to be somewhat accurate,however many stories were over exaggerated or stretched out.

    however you not believing in it does not make it fiction,it is religion and theology and thus belongs under such category.

    I have the old fashioned square kind. The wife wanted me to get rid of them. But I wouldn't

    I was using your definition of fiction. The stories and characters of the bible are made up, not just exaggerated. That people believe them as dogma notwithstanding.

    That is about the only thing we have packed. Perhaps she is telling me something.

    well your not quite right there,much of the bible has been historically proven,but shown to have been over exagerated,which would be expected when most stories occured during the age of illiteracy,so they got passed down over and over until someone who could write wrote them.

    they found sodom and its sister city,it was destroyed by fire and brimstone,however scientifically it appears to be from a volcano,the garden of eden was found as well.numerous other things were found written in the bible and other texts from other ancient religions of the region.

    that doesnt make them fiction,but rather exaggerated truth.it is a belief system,science cant prove all of it,but much was true,and the rest id belief.the difference between fiction and beleif is one is not proven,but believed,while the other is fabricated for the intention of being false,mostly for entertainment purposes.
