    ok, having been inspired by a post in another thread, i wanted to ask this question...i would have posted there, but felt it was off topic (didnt want to go to the lounge )

    anyway, in what sense is the bible not a book..... it's like 66 books or stg; but why? in what sense? what is a book, and how is it defined?

    now have you been drinking????











    yes? good&#33;



    anyhow, i concur wholeheartedly...I fail to see how it is classified as a compilation of books, therefore not a book???

    it reminds me of the "joke"

    if you have two haystacks and take half of one of them, and a quarter of the other and add them together, how many haystacks do you have?

























    answer: 3

    Who said the bible wasn&#39;t a book and what did they base this contention on ?

    Is Foundation (Isaac Asimov) a book. It&#39;s actually a collection of short stories, but it is still a book.

    The Bible is a book. If one was wanting to be nitpicky, it could be considered an omnibus. Simply because it&#39;s divided into lesser books (rather than chapters, which was a common enough practice centuries ago) doesn&#39;t mean it&#39;s not a book.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    The bible is technically a book, but IMO, it&#39;s more of an archive, siince the bible is actually multiple books put together. And that each book of the bible is divided into chapters, giving each book characteristics of an actual book.

    The word Bible means "book."
