RationalWiki Upgrade 2017

Since this morning, RationalWiki.org is running on MediaWiki 1.27.

This is a bit of a facade, since it's just a snapshot which Tim Starling imported and upgraded as a dry run.

This database will be dropped and recreated, so any edits you make will be lost. Sorry!

In addition, search and several other functions are not done yet and will give PHP errors.

It was probably much more explicit than this.

The Song of Solomon, also known as the Song of Songs, is supposed to be the sexiest book of the Bible.[1]

{cue Barry White}


Also known by its alternative title, "Scriptural Sexytime Hawtness," the Song of Solomon follows the relationship of a man and a woman from courtship to (ahem) knowledge in the Biblical sense. The book is often interpreted as allegorical,[2] representing the relationship between God and the Israelites and/or Christ and the church. This served the purpose of squaring the presence of an erotic poem in the Biblical canon with the disdain for marriage and sex exhibited by several New Testament figures, and with the form of Platonic dualism (mind good, matter bad) that had found its way into Christian doctrine. However, a more straightforward reading of the text leaves little doubt as to what's gettin' on.

Although the more boorish voyeurs will be disappointed in the book, it contains several beautifully poetic pick-up lines. Be warned, rational ladies!
