From the same author

as the blog from which I clipped a comment in the previous post: "Ecclesiastes is by far the best book in the Bible. Of course most of the good stuff contradicts what the Bible says elsewhere."

His lists of "good stuff" are very well chosen.

Btw, this isn't on one of those lists, but if I'd noticed this verse months ago I wonder where I'd be now:
Galatians 23:13 And now as ye have been delivered by the power of God out of these bonds; yea, even out of the hands of king Noah and his people, and also from the bonds of iniquity, even so I desire that ye should stand fast in this liberty wherewith ye have been made free, and that ye trust no man to be a king over you.

Galations does not have 23 chapters soooo I don't know where you got that verse.

Crap. What did I do?

Why, it's the book of Mosiah in the Book of Mormon, of course. I was wondering who this Alma guy was that Paul was talking about. The skeptical annotator was accusing Mr. Smith of lifting the passage from Gal. 5:1 "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."

Al, I think you would enjoy Terry Pratchett's "Wee Free Men" and the Feegles.
