The "like" button is a relatively new feature of JetPunk. The oldest comments won't necessarily have the most likes for this reason.

Man, you'd've thought (you know, given the all-knowing aspect of this thing and all) that its writers would've known something about more than what was just common knowledge at the time. Guess not. If only there was a lesson in there somewhere about this...

The "writers" were inspired by God. They wrote what God gave them to write. Just because they wrote portions of the Bible, doesn't mean they are all-knowing. God is the only all-knowing being mentioned in the bible.

No, in the beginning man created god and so the only knowledge that god had was what man gave to him.

That is why there is no foreknowledge in the bible and claims that there is are bogus

Excuse me mr. witty, why for example gold has a symbol Au? Becouse of "gold" or becouse of latin "Aurum"? Many of chemicans still use latin names. Imo although symbols should be accepted.

Too bad there wasn't a character in the bible called Liam. Then we totally could have had another element with a line like this: "Verily, I am he. Liam, they call me."
