Since we’re on the subject of Bible contradictions, did you know that there are at least three different versions of the Ten Commandments? The Jews have one, the Catholics have one and the Protestants have one. This is one reason why posting the Ten Commandments in public buildings violates the U.S. Constitution — because posting one of the three versions of the Ten Commandments would indicate that the U.S. government favors one of those three Judeo-Christian religions above the other two (and, indeed, favors it also above all the other religions on our planet). This would be a direct violation of the Establishment Clause of the Constitution.
