I accidentally purchased Burton salts as opposed to gypsum at the LHBS recently, and on the label it says "contains papain." So I was perusing the web, looking for details on the use of papain in brewing, and found this gem:

BEER HAS EVERYTHING???

Be sure to read it all; the farther in you go, the better it gets.

Heh, that's exactly what I was thinking when I read it. And this was published recently, not 80 years ago.

Wow. A few partial truths with some unresearched garbage. Did they actually research what dextrin is and where it comes from. This is why I don't like some extreme bible thumpers.

Okay. I get it. They don't like our beer. They fain at our additives.

So I say let them drink GOD's life water from the stagnant pond and soon they will see their folly.

Anyone can play this game.

And it goes on and on. It's a retarded argument that will never end because the Bible was written by many people over hundreds of years in languages that don't always lend themselves well to translation. It's full of contradictions like this and few enough people have actually read the thing to make an informed judgment one way or the other.

Not enough people are critical of their sources, and they'll read a page like this (or hear a sermon like this, or talk to a family member like this) and take it at face value. Short answer: people are ignorant, lazy, and want to be coddled. Heck, I'm completely non-religious and I've read it cover-to-cover just because it's a fascinating piece of history.

I'm all worked up now, time for some serious RDWHAHB.

ok, to shoot a HUGE hole in that crap. dont catholics drink wine as "the blood of Christ"?

My knowledge of alcohol is its not completely healthy for you, but frankly nothing is, yet its only REALLY harmful to you in large amounts. the lesson? drink in moderation or just enjoy your drink, you're not gonna live forever anyways.

when I say "that crap" I mean the site linked in the original post.
