The Old Testament! Long time readers may remember my attempt to write goofy Bible satires. I got as far as Leviticus. Beyond the Book of Numbers (for which I had a good idea, but never the time to write), it was getting harder to find the inspiration. So, that didn't last. However, I did not stop reading. I read it all, including the Apocryphal and Deuterocanonical books. I took about three years to do it. I couldn't read it straight through, so I took many breaks to read other things. I have not yet read the New Testament, but I will be getting to that in the next year or so.

In honor of a new report by the National Academy of Sciences emphasizing the importance of teaching evolution in public schools (and my listening to an NPR discussion about it), I'm posting my reaction to reading The Old Testament. It's not as deep and eloquent as I'd like, but the baby doesn't give me much time for scholarly writing. I wish I had more time and energy to cite more specific examples for each topic and elaborate more, but I don't have it in me at this time. So...here's my draft that will stay forever rough.
