Good Book Stickers

I saw this on the DU Theology forum today.

Proposed sticker on the cover of the Bible, in response to fundamentalists'desire to put stickers on the covers of books which discuss evolutionary theory:

"This book contains material on Christianity. Christianity is a belief system that explains the origin of the universe and all living things in it as an act of divine creation. This material should be approached with an open mind and critically considered. In no sense should what you are about to read be considered a theory, as theories are based on data and observation while religious beliefs are taken as articles of faith. While many claim that this book is the literal word of God, no evidence for divine authorship exists.

It should be understood that Christianity is only one of hundreds of religions that exist today, each of which proposes an alternative view of the universe. As each religion requires no proof other than faith, each can be viewed as equally valid and none may actually be correct."

Other than the Old Testament is in the Bible, I thought this was pretty accurate for the Good Book. If only!
