Given that most KJV supporters have never actually read the thing, that means I can make any quote I want, and claim it is from there. As long as it is in weird and elitist language.

Most people cannot tell which quotations are from the KJV and which are from Shakespeare. I believe there are on-line quizzes, which many people fail miserably.

Put Shakespeare, BCP, Revised Version and KJV and I suspect few will be 100% accurate in getting the KJV. A lot of the older KJVers mean "the Bible of the church I attended in my youth" which they assume was the KJV and was often the RV.

It's the same with the Book of Common Prayer. I have lost track of the versions that I have encountered and used; the prayers I absorbed through osmosis in my childhood, are all changed , so I can't even say the Creed anymore without checking[ Nicene]. Or worse, the Lord's Prayer.
I have a BCP printed in 1806, wherein we pray for King George, Queen Charlotte, and Prince George, plus the rest of the Royal family.It also contains services for the celebration of the apprehension of Guy Fawkes, the Martyrdom of King Charles I, and the Restoration of Charles II.
I do miss using it .

Now I see through a glass darkly. Maybe I should clean my specs.

If I don't read the Nicene Creed from the BCP, I will, unfailingly, say, "For the remission of sins." (Why would they get rid of a great word like "remission" but keep "trespasses" and "lead us not into temptation" in the Lord's Prayer?)

A challenge, yes, SC. But as you see, it is achieved. Time for a sustaining cup of coffee.

Something a little odd there - 8,000 on two posts?

Anyway, mission accomplished. Coffee.

When you come into the new digs on Wednesday you'll find that jedijudy and I have been getting things ready for you, and a lot of our familiar ongoing threads -- on books, movies, recipes, computer help, etc -- have been started anew on the new board, with links provided to the old discussion back here so you can check on what was said previously. We hope to make it a comfortable and Heavenly site for all our crew ... looking forward to seeing you in the New Heaven on Wednesday!

Steady on: this is still Monday. We are living in the "now" (this week) but also the "not yet" (Wednesday 5pm).

As things stand, we are, as Barnabas62 so helpfully reminds us, in the Last Days.

Shouldn't we be putting on white robes, or disposing of all our household goods, or giving our pets to post-eschaton animal shelters, or something?

Let's adopt a suitable tone here, folks.

So that's why I'm disposing of my household goods: it's all preparation for the eschaton. [Paranoid] Glad to have that cleared up.

Going on current form, the next day will see a frantic surge of activity with shipmates try to reach a pleasing number of posts which will start to decline as they reach it or give up. The result will be that it will look as if you have

1/100 chance of finishing posting with '000'
1/10 chance of finishing with '00'
and everyone will finish with a 0.

This will result in speculation in later centuries that Ship of Fools was a mathematical cult of Christianity that thought '0' was sacred so we always posted in lots of ten.

They have the same titles! That way, there will be no confusion. Plus, Trudy and I hope the links to these threads here will be helpful to anyone who needs to check back on a previous query or response.

And we certainly want to keep those yummy recipes handy! [Big Grin]

Somewhere, in one of the many threads about the new Ship, I thought we were told there wouldn't be post counts? Or did I dream that?

Give him about five minutes.

Another question... will flood control and editing time be the same as on the current Ship?

To be honest I think I was briefly drunk with power and changed the title of the recipe thread to "What's Cooking?" But for the most part the titles should be either exactly the same, or similar enough that you will have no difficulty figuring out what's what.

There's no need for the luxury helicopter, the new ship is moored up the jetty from where the crew are desperately trying to keep this old tub afloat for another day.

Ox carts are provided for the luggage.

Yes, in the sense that these will be set to x and y minutes respectively, and it will take z minutes for somebody to complain about x and y in the Styx, where z < x or y.
