Hm. I guess that bit about "Thou Shalt Not Lie" and "Thou Shalt Not Bear
False Witness" aren't part of the Ten Commandments anymore???
I just have a really hard time wrapping my head around the idea that
seemingly devout people would promulgate shameful bare-faced lies in an
attempt to advance their own religious views. What good does it do to
convince folks of the literal accuracy of Genesis if you've doomed your
soul in the process? Makes no sense ...
