Dead Sea Scrolls, Greek Septuagint, Hebrew manuscripts, Aleppo Codex
All written by stupid humans. sigh

You are correct. "Stupid humans," wrote the bible, but they did not author it. Jehovah God did. The Bible has no equal in all human history. God inspired the original scriptures, but they were physically written by 40 secretaries or scribes (the "stupid people") over the course of 1,610 years.

The Bible, itself, had scholars and skilled copyists like Ezra who wrote the books of Ezra and both Chronicles (Side note: the original scrolls chronicling the lineage of kings -- also called "The Book of The Kings" during those days -- had been lost or destroyed during Babylon's destruction of Jerusalem in 607 BCE.)

Many of these "stupid" scribes acknowledged God to be the author.

MOSES - (Exodus 24:4) "Moses wrote down all the words of Jehovah."
SAMUEL - (2 Samuel 23:2) The spirit of Jehovah spoke through me; His word was on my tongue.
PAUL - (2 Timothy 3:16) All Scripture is inspired of God
PETER - (2 Peter 1:21) For prophecy was at no time brought by man’s will, but men spoke from God as they were moved by holy spirit.
DANIEL - (Daniel 7:1) "Daniel saw a dream and visions of his head as he lay on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream; he recorded a complete account of the matters."

Humans are at liberty and their stupid biases to translate the scriptures incorrectly, but no matter how they do it the core scriptures remain intact. The reason? "the word of our God endures forever." (Isaiah 40:8) Jehovah has taken it upon himself to preserve the Biblical canon throughout human history despite repeated attempts to rid humanity of it (e.g., Dark Ages).

The point of my reply is this: the translations that remain as close as possible to the source also remain the most accurate translations of God's Words.

The bible has been rewritten more often and by more people than the original Star Wars trilogy has been molested by its creator. Wait for another rewrite and expect a line about 9 world empires.

Don't confuse "rewrite" with "translation." These two words are not the same. However, are there examples of bad translations? Absolutely.

Almost every Bible in circulation today has omitted God's chosen name even though he states it very clearly, "I am Jehovah. That is my name." (Isaiah 42:8) When asked about this omission translators give reasons like "no one knows how to pronounce the divine name, so it is better to substitute it with titles like LORD and GOD." However, they have no problems translating Yeshu'a or Yehohshu'a, which means "Jehovah Is Salvation," into the Greek Iesous (Jesus).

Where translators have taken unjustifiable liberties with the translation, they have in effect changed its meaning (what you would label as "rewritten"). The Bible is fraught with examples of this. However, Bibles that rely on authentic sources such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, Greek Septuagint, Hebrew manuscripts, Aleppo Codex, and various others; and compare them to determine authenticity are the Bibles with the most accurate translations. That is the Bible I study.

Hmmm, why don't you and me come back to this discussion in about 100 years or so, yes? I'm pretty sure things will be a bit different by then...

Pretty sure in a 100-years we won't care.

(Isaiah 65:13, 17) "This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah [YHWH] says: ‘... Look! I am creating new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be called to mind, nor will they come up into the heart.'"

Hopefully, we will all be in that new earth under the "new heaven"-like Kingdom of God. No more stupid humans who think they can rule, be president, be a tyrant, or a dictator. Thumbsup

Nope. Biblical study. Without getting into the minutiae it states the last King*, or world power*, in Biblical prophecy won't be destroy by human hands, but by God's Kingdom.

* throughout history there have been seven world powers who had a direct influence on God's people:
1. Egypt
2. Assyria
3. Babylon
4. Meds and Persians (also called The Medo-Persian Empire)
5. Greece
6. Rome
7. Anglo-American (United States and United Kingdom)
There will not be an eighth world power.

Early in the 21st Century, THE EQUIFAX CORPORATION advanced database technology held the IDENTITIES - information on virtually every human in existence - of the planet. The EQUIFAX was superior in security and protection, and at least equal in intelligence to the hackers who try to breach them routinely. Equifax was used as data storage, in the lucrative exploration and monetization of corporate entities. After the violation during an off-season spell, the Webb and Mauldin series was declared illegal in Equifax - under penalty of prosecutive. Special police squads - FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION - had orders to arrest, upon detection, any trespassing Webb, and Mauldin. This was not called detention. It was called retirement.

Sure, but so far everything I've seen from this game makes Egypt look absolutely amazing. And the few gameplay videos have looked pretty good.

I'm usually not that bothered by maps full of 10000 things to do, as I'm perfectly able to just ignore the ones that don't interest me.

Beginning with Syndicate, Ubisoft significantly toned-down the visibility of side activities on the map, and to the point where many have to be sought out without map markers.

This will be my first Ass Creed I buy at launch. I've played a bit of 2 and Black Flag at sale prices and could never get into them. However, with the revamped combat and a more open world emphasis it'll be the perfect game to test out my newly upgraded rig, 1080 Ti / Coffee Lake 8700k

Just be aware that until the modern day story is rebooted it's probably going to be difficult to follow. This happened to me when I started playing Syndicate. It forced me to play AC2 through Unity, just so I could get up to speed with it all.

P.S. If it comes to that, that's not a bad thing.

More often than not a critic's view of a film doesn't gel with the general public. I wouldn't put them on a pedestal.

Imagine this. You being a money person, Steven Spielberg came to you and pitched a movie about horses during World War 2. Given his history with this genre, you jump at the chance. Then you see "Warhorse, " and you regret the decision. Star Citizen is Chris Roberts' "Warhorse."
Haha! Nice analogy Kx.

Hey, at least Spielberg finished Warhorse.
Yeah, but we wish he hadn't...

Well, it's only slightly better than "A.I. Artificial Intelligence"; a fusion of Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick's styles that doesn't quite work.
