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 ...
