New Edition of the Bible Says Evolution Is True

I really don't know what to say here besides WTF? Do we really need a bastardized bible that incorporates science into the narrative and uses Tony Robbins for source material?

If you believe that we evolved from apes, that Genesis is great poetry, and that the Universe is billions of years old, can you still enjoy reading the Bible?

Bronx school teacher and book artist Ruth Rimm thinks she has an answer. Her latest book series, the "Lost Spiritual World," is a lavishly illustrated, "postmodern" edition of the Bible for skeptics, seekers, and people of different faiths.

"There may be a profound message behind the miracle stories, but the big bang and evolution implore us not to read things literally," Rimm says. "Most Americans would rather discover the spiritual truths behind the religious metaphors, especially given how fundamentalism is impacting public life with a narrow view of religion."

Unless this is a complete hoax, it qualifies for nutball status as new age pseudo-religious crapola.

Don't forget to watch the Parable of the Gorilla.

I wonder if the author was inspired by this post I did over a year ago.
