Wrong on Bible

I do not understand how the VND could allow fallacious statements like those written by Amy Verri in her letter “Bible as textbook” (Nov. 28) to be published.

Ms. Verri writes that “the Bible is the oldest history book written.” This illustrates the utter failure of the education system of this nation if Ms. Verri believes this. If she cared to recognize facts, she'd know history books existed in the fifth dynasty of Egypt in 2400 B.C. — millennia before even the Hebrew Bible.

Why would your newspaper aid in the dissemination of anti-historical religious right propaganda?
