This is like walking into Round Britain Quiz.  I always thought  Che Guevara died before he was 40, but maybe he escaped after all and eked out his days in a cave in Jordan.  He could be living still on a Greek island like John the apostle, writing down his revelations for his disciples to puzzle over instead of getting on with the Guarduan crossword like normal people.

Correction, Lark -- it's the Grauniad crossword.

Well, l don't.  I struggle with the children's picture crossword in the local rag.  But l always fancied that Revelations was a trick devised by a bored old man  (some authorities say lots of naughty old men) to keep scholars  amused and off the streets.

Some might say the whole Bible fits that description. Not to mention some other holy books I'm not mentioning.  Cool

Why not mention them?  They are all just books written by men.

We're all -- Jews, Christians, Muslims -- the People of the Book. Christians just added to the existing Jewish version and Islam added to the resultant fictional anthology. All made up by males, as you say, unless you believe in the One True God and/or Angels, whose sex seems to be indeterminate. Or not?

Probably one of the better features of the Church of Rome is that there's no particular emphasis or expectation of Bible reading. At least at neither of the Catholic schools I attended. I do keep a Bible, as it happens, for historical and cultural purposes. Douai version, of course,

Of course if Che were to be writing his equivalent of Revelations it would be a Marxist version to ensure atheists as screwed up everyone else.
