*Reading* the Holy Bible and *comprehending* it are two entirely different,
unrelated, and sometimes contradictory phenomenon. Most American 12th grade
girls *read* math and physics books, but TIMSS proved behyond the shadow of
all doubt that their *comprehension* of these subjects was ZERO, or LESS
than zero http://christianparty.net/timssphysics.htm
Most of the 900 million niggers in Africa READ, or had read to them, the
Holy Bible, but do you think they understood even ONE word in it? They will
argue with you until the sun comes up that "thou shalt not steal" does NOT
mean "thou shalt not steal". If they don't get that one, you can bet they
don't and can't get the rest.
