Quote# 13173

[continuing his hard-on for the KJV]

If your original Hebrew disagrees with my original King James --- your original Hebrew is wrong. If your original Hebrew agrees with my original King James, your original Hebrew is right.

So... a variation between the original manuscript (which would have been the original word of god) and an edited, rewritten version (done in a completely different language no less) means that the original manuscript, the first Christian Bible, is wrong? What? It's not like you've got scientific evidence backing up the authenticity of the King James Version versus the original Hebrew texts.

Amazing. Can't vote, the scale is inapplicable. If he was a fundy, he wouldn't hold this opinion. He's just a wannabe fundy, except for the fact he's too ignorant. Of his own religion, no less...
Why, in the name of mercy does fundamentalism (or religion in general) require (or result in) such ignorance?

This is just pathetic He acknowledges a \"original\" Hebrew text but claims that it is wrong when compared to his non-original?

Maybe he should get a rebate from his school.

Demented as it may seem, there appears to be a group of ultra extreme KJVers who believe that the KJV is the ONLY inerrant Word of God TM because it was divinely inspired. The rest was written/transcribed by falliable humans.

I mean cannonisation occurs and there's the whole Gnostic thing

Let me see if I understand this: A translation of the original text into a new language after which the authority of the original is denied and the translation becomes the accepted text. Is that about it?

Correct you are, noself. There is an ongoing exchange of letters to the editor of a local newspaper concerning this very thing. There are quite a few that argue that the KJV is the ONLY true and correct version of the Bible.

Noself, Star Cluster: They think that the KJV is the ONLY inspired Word of God (TM)? What the heck do these people think the previous versions of these books over the preceding centuries were -- God's uninspired rough drafts?

Seriously, this kind of bloody-mindedness is simple insanity. That's just too stark a break with even the fundies' own reality to make any kind of sense.

This has got to receive some award, but I just cannot figure out what award would do justice to this...this..I don't even have words to descripe this.

If he's such an unshakeable fan of the KJV, I'd love to know where he thinks all the unicorns it references have gone.

David: Apparently. I'm just reporting what I've seen in print, sports fans. I don't profess to understand them. Even in my \"faithful days,\" I wasn't this mind-numbingly stupid.

What a numbskull. Everyone knows that the Good News Bile is the one and only truely dictated word of god.

This demonstrates the danger of fundie thinking.

My bible is right, even if the translation is shown to be wrong!

Note to everyone, original WRITTEN bible was in Aramaic, a precursor to Hebrew.

Somehow I doubt that would mean much to AV1611VET.

First, no originals of any Bible books exist.

Second, the OT was likely originally written in Hebrew or Aramaic, but the NT was written in Greek.

Third, the KJV was translated from the few, relatively late manuscripts which were available at the time; hardly what one would call \"original.\" Compared to some newer translations which utilize many more ancient manuscripts now available, the KJV contains many more errors and forgeries.

Last, you're an idiot.

Look, until you can learn to read chicken-tracks etched on papyrus or some ancient stone tablet, all your versions are wrong.

Oh please tell me this guy isn't claiming that the translation is more accurate than the original source...

I don't even think there is a name for that logical fallacy, is there? Or has this guy actually invented a NEW one?

If so can we call it the \"AV16 Error\" in honor of him?
