Yeah it's really unfair when books of fiction end up in the fiction category. I once found star trek books in the sci-fi section, I was so pissed! I tweeted costco and said, "HEY MAN! people wrote about this stuff, how can you say it isn't true!?" - they apologized and said it was human error. I went back, STILL SCIENCE FICTION! WTF?

Accidental honesty.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Almost.... They still need a Excl WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT Excl sticker.

Just imagine the outrage if kids under 18 weren't allowed to buy a Bible w/o a parent or guardian. Smile

RE: Costco puts the Bible in the fiction section!
The comments below that article are absolutely cringeworthy. Confused

"The Bible is a 2000 year old documentary account of actual events described in the language of that time so it is non-fiction. No different than Origin of Species or a Limbaugh book which I would bet, would both be labeled non-fiction if found at the same location."

"Considering much of the Bible has been corroborated in both the archaeological and historical records respectively (as well as by human reason), it's hard to consider it "fiction." The Bible is the most verified book in human history; presumably the only reason people deny that is their hostility to the Judeo-Christian worldview.

As a Catholic I hesitate to categorize it as "nonfiction" because of the jeers of "Science proves the world wasn't created in 7 days!" But historic Christianity doesn't teach to read Genesis literally. The New Testament is to be read literally (if it's false, then Christianity is false as it's predicated upon God entering into history), but that's not so with the Old Testament; some is read "literally," some is read symbolically. But with the Old Testament there is a specific process in which the books are meant to be read to evaluate, for example, that the world was not in fact created in 7 days, but the line of Jewish kings and rulers can be read "literally.""

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Costco labels the bible as fiction. I thought this would be of interest to the people on TTA.
