Stranger in a Strange Land is an amazing book, I loved how he synthesized all the religions and formed his own unique religion.

Having 'been' in a Catholic school for about 15 years of my life, I probably read at least several portions of the Bible. Don't remember if I read it completely. Now I don't remember anything of it either, and I probably won't have to re-read it anytime soon. My level of Catholicism has seriously decreased. 8)

I remember many of the stories in detail, a lot of the minor stories are forgotten though. I tried reading through the Bible one time, but gave up when I got to the "begots".

(And so and so begot so and so, who begot so and so, etc.)

I suggest you can read this book that was released in 2000 (or before), ugh cant seriously remember its name cuz it was borrowed and I had to reaaally make a quick fast reading :(, it was about the lost passages?

huge... controversial book in its time, some call it blasphemy... some others just one of the greatest best sellers of the year lol :P

if you get offended easily please dont read it... if you are curious you should at least check it out, it also had a part about the "secret code of the bible" lol, that part I must admit was a bit way off, hard to understand but extremely interesting to read...

I once saw a documentary (on BBC) on supposed secret messages in the bible (IIRC). Bit of controversy between those who say there is, and those who say there isn't.  Ofcourse, it's easy to find secret messages to things that already happened, it's harder to find secret messages to things that haven't happened yet.

All this talk of faith and history leads me to wonder this, how many have seen “The Passion Of The Christ”?  It’s not really on my list but I’d love to hear impressions.

The Riddle-Master Trilogy is awesome, I reread it just recently. :) By now I've read it maybe 3 or 4 times, maybe more. :D

Here's a review of the trilogy:

I rarely read new books, I normally wait till they're old(cheaper).

If books without a plot count, I've recently read a book about XP(I don't remember the title).

And you stayed awake though this whole book?

Then again it might have a plot...

"One upon a time a company called M$ created Windows 95/98, a 32 bit extension and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprossessor...*

Then they M$ stole the code for a "modem" OS from IBM and called it Windows NT. Realizing that NT was ugly they stole a pretty GUI from Apple and made a magical thing called Windows XP..."

I thought when they stole the GUI from Apple they made Windows itself.  XB
