Why "Scriptures" are considered "Holy"
If you ask any kid - "Is everything on the internet real" ?-- the kid will probably shoot milk out his nose, (or Red Bull for older ones) - and laugh hysterically at you for your ignorance... OF COURSE everything on the internet is not true.

So - why do people hold that stories in a book - however far fetched - are true?

I believe it's because of cultural memory and a previous lack of access......

Kids know that not everything on the internet is true - because they have access to the information - and can cross check stuff at will. They learn over time, that there's a bunch of bullshit out there on the net - and they pass that on to their friends.

For the MAJORITY of the time that language has been written -- not everyone could read. MOST people only got to know what was in books, by what someone (the clergy) told them. Therefore - they had no method of cross checking information. They also were influenced by previous generations of illiterates, who believed the hokum they had been fed. Dad thought it was true, usually means Junior thinks it's true.


Theory --- if "The Bible" or any other "scripture" were first published anytime after 1950 -- they'd have been put in the "Fantasy/fiction" genre - where they belong.

RE: Why "Scriptures" are considered "Holy"
Is there such a things as unholy scripture ? What does "holy" mean ?

When Timothy said that all scripture was "god-breathed" there was no canon yet, and some of it hadn't been written yet. So what was he even referring to ?

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

God seems to have breath problems.

I mean, his halitosis was so bad that when he breathed on dirt it made humans: it was so bad it forced dirt to stop being dirt. I don't see why it couldn't create bullshit books too. Consider

"Holy" cometh from an olde English word halig, which cometh from yet another olde English word hal, which mean-eth "whole."

And that-eth is all-eth there is-eth to that-eth.

You forget that the Americas are continents, not purely nations, good sir. Those of Canadian background are still of the colonies of the Americas.
