PBS is set to present a program this fall that says the Old Testament is a bunch of made-up stories that never happened. "The Bible's Buried Secrets", scheduled to air on November 18, says the Bible is not true.
Producer Paula Apsell said: "It's designed for intelligent people who are willing to change their mind. …it will give intelligent people who want to read the Bible in a modern way a chance. If we insist on reading the Bible literally, in 25 years, nobody will read it any longer."

Hmmm.... really.....

Among highlights (or lowlights) of "The Bible's Buried Secrets":
• The Old Testament was written in the 6th century BC and hundreds of authors contributed.
• Abraham, Sarah and their offspring didn't exist.
• There is no evidence of the Exodus.
• Monotheism was a process that took hundreds of years.
• The Israelites were actually Canaanites.
• The Israelites believed that God had a wife.
Although PBS does broadcast some quality programming at times, this story is a perfect example of why I don't send in my contribution.
