I don't see how it could create more jobs...unless maybe you're talking about someone becoming a preacher perhaps? Either way, it's caused more harm than good. I'll mention the crusades to her if it comes up.

AIG makes money off of it, in a dishonest way but still they make money.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

AAaaaa yesss, we can't forget our friends at AIG! And of course all those brilliant people that make money off of religious things such as prayer rugs that even though they say are rugs are really pieces of paper they mail you!

Though I guess it all depends on what is meant by "Invention". According to the Oxford Dictionary "Invent" has a definition of
Quote:"Make up (an idea, name, story, etc.), especially so as to deceive"
So in that case yes the bible could be counted as an invention.

Did she really just call the Bible an invention?

Following this logic, crime is a benefit to society because it creates police jobs.
