    as a child i found the bible had quite a profound meaning, which i guess was interpreted through my non-judgemental love. as my intelligence grew in the bible later in life, the bible seemed to lose a lot of that good meaning.

    when i look at a lot people who write in here i also see this same effect. in our intellect we ge ...[text shortened]... ellect, but it's impossible for some to genuinely increase it. this way, it holds no prejudice.
    When I was a child, one of my relatives got me a children's illustrated version of the bible for Christmas. Man, was I upset. What a waste of a present. That was about as good as getting underwear. But at least the underwear would have served some useful purpose.

    Are you implying that me or my life are unsatisfactory because I have no use for a bible?

    Since you have clearly been extremely successfull in this regard, maybe you could undertake the task of translating the Bible and revealing its hidden truths to those of use who still have inteligence?
    And why exactly does God not want inteligent people? (Adam and eve story)

    It's an incredible repository of story, although it's kind of dull between Acts and Revelation.

    What does knowledge of Good and Evil have to do with intelligence?
