The King James Version is pretty edited too. He heavily edited Genesis. However he did maintain a lot of the original text, including the repeated mention of mythological creatures that we know don't exist.

What we need to start doing is recognizing that the bible is no more than a work of greatly influential fiction.

By the way, I finally have a response to SK, who if I recall correctly, asked why so many people in the early church would suffer and die for a lie.

The answer is the same reason people get sucked into the Church of Scientology. In fact, the CoS is a perfect example of how ALL religions are started, what their true purpose is, and what their ultimate goal is.

So, honestly Bubba; Can you tell me that you believe Cockatrices, Dragons, Fairies, Satyrs, and other such legendary beasts actually existed? Do you think bats are birds?

There are still a lot of problems in the bible that can't be talked around. Well, contradictions rather. It quite often demonstrates that god is NOT omnipotent or all-knowing. In fact, if he was all knowing, then there would really be no point in faith, because it would already be pre-determined who chose what, essentially, since he'd already know who was going to from the beginning. Which really speaks volumes for how cruel your deity of choice truly is, predetermining everything and everyone's choices and fate, giving us the cruel illusion of free will.

Then there's the fact the he fears his own creations, as demonstrated by the Tower of Babel story. Even the banishment of Adam and Eve was more for his fear of them becoming gods than the fact that they disobeyed him. After all, knowledge and immortality (which they would have had if they had been able to eat from the Tree of Life, which is an absurd concept to begin with and is an altered version of the Tree in Norse Mythology that held the three realms together) would make one a god of sorts. It's there in the print.
