The American Bible Challenge
So GSN has cancelled High Stakes Poker and instead has picked up what is certainly going to be the show of the century, "The American Bible Challenge". I thought that we should suggest some questions that ought to appear to see how well the contestants really know their bible.
When the children of Israel came across a man picking up sticks on the Sabbath and brought him to Moses, what punishment did the Lord recommend?
Why did the Lord send two bears to kill 42 children?
What action does the bible recommend a man take if he looks at a woman with lust?
What horrible act did Ananias and Sapphira commit that caused the Lord to smite them?
I'm sure the more scholarly among us can come up with thousands of great questions for the show.
It was morality that burned the books of the ancient sages, and morality that halted the free inquiry of the Golden Age and substituted for it the credulous imbecility of the Age of Faith. It was a fixed moral code and a fixed theology which robbed the human race of a thousand years by wasting them upon alchemy, heretic-burning, witchcraft and sacerdotalism.-H.L. Mencken
