    Good thing for the ‘explanation’ text at the bottom, because from the panel alone, I thought that was the Statue of Liberty they were talking to 🙂

  • Isn’t interesting how each new generation thinks they have the right interpretation. Never mind the great theologians of which many are now Saints, who spent their life studying the bible in it’s original language. It is today’s Christians, many of whom have not even  bothered to read the re-re-re-translation who have it right.

  • I guess Jesus had to keep off his right side while napping.

    Strawman! True Christians™ will never admit they are wrong.

  • While I agree to some extent with your point, we shouldn’t overlook the fact that we are capable of better thinking today than we were in the past. Your so-called “great theologians” typically produced really poor arguments. The development of modern, formal, analytical thinking after the 16th century really opened the door to a much more critical analysis.

    Of course, theologians continue to ignore much of this. It is left to the unbiased (or less biased) scholars to analyze ancient religious writings… and from this thought we now understand how much cannot be interpreted with confidence at all, and how much is simply fiction.
