Yup. And that's what everyone has been providing.

But you might have to define "we". It's still socially acceptable in some countries to consider women to be 'property'.

Slavery, Rape, Murder, Sacrifices.

Most people now would find these unacceptable but back then and in the Bible these acts were condoned and sometimes even celebrated.

RE: how has tge bible evolved?
Well right from the genesis, no pun intended, I can think of the following:

1.) Creation of the world and universe
2.) Creation of everything in the world, including us primates
3.) Human and animal sacrifice
4.) How languages were formed
5.) How god was formed (in our minds)
6.) Major genocide (although this one we still can't seem to get right and according to Dr. James Dobson we have now been equivocated to The Nazi regimes because we have killed more than 55 million babies in America through abortion. Insert sarcasm here)
7.) Slavery
8.) Misogyny
9.) Almost all of the 600+ insanely ridiculous mosaic laws / Torah proclaimed by the Talmud

Come, come, now. Don't try to tell me that it's now socially acceptable to boil a baby goat in its mother's milk!?!

I mean, who does that?

No Oh dear, I'm afraid i've just implicated myself. It's a good thing the state I live in hasn't abolished capital punishment. I'll be next with a comment like that. Angel

Is it OK if I boil it in the milk of another goat that is not the mother?
Inquiring minds want to know.

... does it still count as the mother's milk if you render it into a smoky, cheesy, creamy sauce first?

Actually Genesis says nothing about the "universe". It's presumed. Genesis starts out with the deity moving over the waters of the "deep" (which were also not "created") and which came straight from the Babylonian creation myths. Humans didn't even know the universe was larger than the MIlky Way galaxy until the 20th Century, and there's nothing in ANY "holy text" that indicates they had any clue about it's real size.

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

Your correction is legitimate. I should have used the word "heavens" instead of universe, so I stand corrected (or sit corrected if I want to be entirely truthful.) However, our view of everything "out there" has evolved from "earth and heavens" to the universe, so my point still stands.
