Sad ,very sad.
And these pretend to be intelligent ,yet twist select con tense to find argument against it.
I wonder ,
If the accusers were a defendant in a serious case how well they would deal with the prosecution twisting their words the same way ?
Intelligence and honesty need to go hand in hand .
But then again this is asking it of one whom has set their mind against the truth.
It was not the first book ever printed. There is so little knowledge among the ignorant.

Is the bible really the first book ever written? - Yahoo Answers

The bible represents something you believe in and that's fine. But when you come to an atheist/agnostic forum you are behaving as the ignorant person not to mention rude in calling out accusations and insulting those who you know do not share your belief system. You are just as bad of that which you are accusing others. To put it in words you can understand; pot, meet kettle. Sad, very sad.

Though your criteria for "respecting" a book are pretty suspect, given that Fifty Shades of Grey was on #1 the Bestseller list for so long.
Actually, Gutenberg invented the printing press. The bible was the first printed book.

Interesting that he would choose a work of fiction though.

The Chinese were printing books from woodblock printing before Gutenberg. There are surviving examples from China from 220AD, there are examples from Roman Egypt from the 4th century. Gutenberg wasn't born until 1395.

How does this address whether you stock it in fiction or nonfiction?

I file this post under random ranting.

The Chinese don't count bc they aren't all white and Jesusy.

As I started the PRINTING PRESS was invented by Gutenberg. From Wikipedia:

Compared to*woodblock printing, movable type page-setting was quicker and more durable. The metal type pieces were more durable and the lettering was more uniform, leading to typography and*fonts. The high quality and relatively low price of the*Gutenberg Bible(1455) established the superiority of movable type, andprinting presses*rapidly spread across Europe, leading up to the*Renaissance, and later*all around the world. Today, practically all movable type printing ultimately derives from Gutenberg's movable type printing, which is often regarded as the most important invention of the second millennium.[9]

Yes, Gutenberg invented the printing press. However the first book was printed in China. I never mentioned moving type in my post.

It's funny though, that all the Christians think the bible was the first book ever written or printed.

The link discussed writing, not printing.
