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...

Nice quiz! Though, I'd rather see "brimstone" with sulfur also accepted, instead of the other way around...

Are you reading the Vulgate on Sundays or something? There have been a few changes since the Council of Trent you might want to catch up on.

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."

And if he was an element, it would be called Lium.

You sure 'sulfur' is mentioned, rather than brimstone?
