The Museum of The Bible

Raised RC, now at the least agnostic, but certainly against organised religion, but Id be tempted to give it a visit.

Religious or atheist, all of us who speak English are indebted to the Bible,specifically the King James version, for a lot of everyday phrases. Here are 122 of them!

Me too, but I'm not against organised religion. I can see that it does a lot of good and a lot of evil. Hardly surprising because it is made up human beings, with all our good and bad points.

Looking at the section on Noah's Ark on this site, the illustration shows a Christian cross in the entrance!
Quite a few centuries adrift?

Looking into this site I was interested to see that a lady sharing my surname - Stanton - was a prominent early abolishinist, and a little digging revealed that her husband, of a similar persuasion, was quite an eminent politician, and instrumental in the founding of the Republican party.

As they say you learn something every day - I always have assumed that some of our ancestors made the trip across the pond, but I had no idea of the existance of these people. So far we have only researched back a little way into our family history so can't claim to be related, and ours is not an uncommon surname anyway, but maybe I could allow myself to feel just a little bit proud!
