Dear Friends, Due to unfortunate considerations of time and cost, Backwards City is no longer a print journal. However, we will maintain our presence on the web that, however meager, we hope you might enjoy.
So what is the Bible? RD: It's a collection of documents written by people in the first millennium B.C., like any other tribal mythology attempting to make sense of the world. All tribes have them, they're all different. This happens to be the Jewish one. And the New Testament? RD: The New Testament is a modification which has come to us because of the invention of Christianity by St. Paul in the first century. And the accounts of the miracles are nonsense are they? RD: Surely, yes. I mean-- The Virgin Birth? Yes. The Resurrection? Yes, they're all-- The Ascension? Yes. All nonsense?
