Stay In School, Kids

The Unseen Hand

From Editor & Publisher:

About one-third of the American adult population believes the Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally word for word, a new Gallup poll reveals. This percentage is only slightly lower than several decades ago.
There is also a strong relationship between education and belief in a literal Bible, Gallup explains, with such belief becoming much less prevalent as schooling continues.
Belief in the literal word of the Bible is strongest among those whose schooling stopped with high school and declines steadily with educational level, with only 20% of college graduates holding that view and 11% of those with an advanced degree.

So then, using a deductive inference (admittedly, a sketchy bit of business when dealing with the rabidly faithful)...

William Tyndale is God?

Too bad he was burned at the stake for heresy.
