Read in January, 1998

My mom might be a good Catholic, or she might be a bit of a nut. But at one point, she agreed to buy me a plane ticket to Europe were I to read the Bible in it's entirety.

"Did you really do it?", people often ask, knowing I took and used the ticket.

Of course, I'm a good son. It took over a year to complete, and I still have my notes somewhere - all the bits of OT hatred, parts that seem to contradict, things here and there that stick out as interesting. But in all, it's rather dull. What's amazing is how this book continues to have such "relevance" in the modern world. I blame mass idiocy-

Don't take me for one of those Richard Dawkins arrogant types who lack imagination. I'm a solid Deist. I just don't see how someone could seriously attempt to guide the course of their life and take inspiration from this book.
