Allow me to also point out that 'Eve' isn't a name anyone in history has ever had. The S and T were lost as the book was passed down. It actually WAS Adam and Steve. Mull that over in your puny human brain.

You're kidding, right? Do you know how often I've seen fundies fall back on translations to support their arguments? Pot, meet kettle.

I bet Sambo83 is one of those people in favour of the death penalty, who when asked why he doesn't hold to 'Thou shalt not kill', says 'No, no, it's thou shalt not murder'.

To be honest, the original argument makes no sense. The English word sodomy means "perverse or abnormal sex", nowadays usually taken to mean buttsecks, particularly male on male.
Surely, the Hebrew equivalent of the English term is the one that means the same thing. The French word for cheese is "fromage", saying the French word for 'cheese' more accurately translates as 'breadstick' doesn't make any sense. If it doesn't translate to the same thing, how is it the other language's word for it?
