Catherine had severe storms in her area last evening and couldn't get online...
I guess the serpent was just perfecting his art of deception then
An excellent point! In the bible, serpents talk, and so do burning bushes and donkeys, and a virgin is impregnated by a ghost. We're supposed to believe (if we believe the bible as being THE most important religious guidebook) that the earth was created in six literal days; that women come from a man's rib, that the entire world was flooded, covering the mountains to drown evil, that all animal species, millions of them, rode in one boat, that language variations stem from the Tower of Babel, that Moses had a magic wand and was able to part the waters of the Red Sea, that fish and bread magically multiplied to feed the hungry, that there is a fiery lake of eternal torment awaiting unbelievers under the earth, while there is life-after-death in a city which is 1, 500 miles cubed, with mansions and food, for CHRISTIANS only
....we could go on and on and on....
Deception is not just being touted by that serpent in the bible...the bible itself is an entire work of deceptive writings and full of contradictions.
