Handwritten draft of King James Bible discovered: Reveals no ‘divine powers’

. . . Some people have such a need to believe. “Actual word of God”. Everyone has the choice to believe what the want. Books of the Bible were removed over time that went against what leaders – Kings and religious leaders – wanted people to know – for the propose of controlling the masses. It’s why all mention of karma was removed. There needed to be a fear of hell. If people understood karma they would know there was no actual “place” called hell. The Catholic Church couldn’t have that. The church is just another business – just like it is today. People at the time needed to be kept ignorant. Today ignorance is choice. In earlier days people weren’t taught to read. Only monks could read. They needed to control what people knew. People were killed if they believed anything else. There was a King James “version” so the king could be on equal footing with the pope. You don’t think the Bible was changed then, too? It’s like gossip. Every time a story is told it is changed. Each person adds their own interpretation. Those that think every word is fact and came from God is a bit naive.

This find certainly seems to suggest that.

The notebook containing the draft was found by American scholar, Jeffrey Alan Miller, an assistant professor of English at Montclair State University in New Jersey, who announced his research in an article in The Times Literary Supplement. The New York…
