pict Bible question (187* d) RE: Bible question 30 Oct 00

The Bible has as many interpretations as it has readers same for the Koran etc.Scholars argue about the actual translations of these texts so what we get to read after it's been through ancient Hebrew,ancient Greek,Sanskrit,Aramaic,Latin,Gaelic,English,Spanish etc etc etc may not be what the original author actually wrote.If we spent our time trying to deal with the problems that face mankind with intelligence and foresight instead of with ready made dubiously translated moral codes handed down from radically different times and cultures to our own,we would probably get on a whole lot better as a species.
