Should we replace the Pseudohistory template with the Scriptures template? I feel like the latter is underused and underrated. I've already added them to the Qur'an and the Hadith articles. G Man (talk) 02:45, 10 December 2019 (UTC)

Passing thought[edit]

… having seen the last few minutes of 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' on TV (channel hopping).

The centurion who said 'Truly he was the son of God' would probably have been referring to Jupiter, Mars or Mithras. Anna Livia (talk) 14:18, 11 April 2020 (UTC)


Does the saying 'A bad workman blames his tools' apply to (at least some interpretations of) the Biblical God? Anna Livia (talk) 11:07, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

A verse of the bible was changed?[edit]

Warning: Mandela effect

I'm talking about Isaish 11:6. I have been talking with someone who claims God changed Isaiah 11:6. He gave this photo as evidence. When I put it through fotoforensics the ELA looked downright bizarre, unlike anything I've seen in fotoforensics. Unfortunately when I saw it my head veered off to the fact it gave Matrix vibes so something bigger was going on. (This is the ELA of a Youtuber I like and is usually what a typical analysis looks like.) But he claims others were changed too. We were on the topic of miracles, xyz being the miracles.--2friedeggs (talk) 02:45, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

I'm not sure what is being claimed. So God, Satan, Vishnu or whoever was able to change some bible verses on paper but was not powerful enough to change them in other media? Because they don't understand modern technology or something? Or they deliberately didn't change your friend's copies but changed everyone else's for - reasons? So I am really confused about what the claim is supposed to be.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 10:47, 26 June 2022 (UTC)

Bible and children[edit]

My attention has been drawn to this (other sources probably available) - somebody snookered the system Anna Livia (talk) 19:06, 28 March 2023 (UTC)

The NY Post is lousy clickbait that I refuse to visit. A better source is The Salt Lake Tribune, which says that the people initiating the action say it's in reaction to Utah's recently passed book banning law. Good for them. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 19:22, 28 March 2023 (UTC)
The 'not in front of the children Bible-bashers' issue seems to have been bubbling along since 'some legislation last August' - I just picked one that is from now-ish.
Bring on the bowdlerised Bibles. Anna Livia (talk) 23:23, 28 March 2023 (UTC)
