in thread RFC: Is the Bible encoded in DNA?

That way you can twist anything into prophecy of anything. I bet you would have no problem twisting a quote from a similar book, the Mein Kampf, to prophesy moon landing or the fall of the Twins or anything else.

In terms of practical value neither Quran nor Mein Kampf ought to be found anywhere but in museums and selected libraries. For exactly the same reasons.

Enoch was right!
Enjoy the last years of Rome.

    Thin ice.

    Putting these two books into the same bracket would probably constitute hate-speech in some western-european countries.

    We all want to be politically correct here, don't we?

      No.

        I actually don't want to either, but I'd say it's wiser to discuss touchy issues somewhere else..

      I know the list is very incomplete. I ought to add at least Das Kapital. It served as an inspiration to socialists both international and national and is responsible for all the tens of millions of deaths in Soviet union, Nazi Germany, China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea and Latin america. By including that I'm certain the naive souls in current Western Europe would go ballistic.

      But it's true we went way OT here :-)

        You forgot a book

        But it's a bit silly to blame a book for people's actions. Some people are just evil, and will find ways to justify their actions.
