You might enjoy reading this recent letter to the editor in the Minnesota newspaper Winona Daily News. The writer argues that the Bible is not a good source on either science or morality by citing unscientific and immoral passages from the Bible.

If you accept the argument outlined in the letter, this leaves the obvious question: if the Bible cannot inform us about how the world works (science), or help us learn how to live together in relative peace (morality), what is the Bible good for?
