  • The Bible: The Difference Between the Original Autographs and Original Texts

    If you're looking for a way to critique the authority of Scripture, there are seemingly endless options. There are historical critiques (e.g., many of these books are forgeries).

And there are hermeneutical critiques (e.g., no one can agree on what the Bible means). In recent years, however, a more foundational challenge has arisen. All of the above critiques are essentially the same; they all argue the words of the Bible are not true. But this...

    A man was jailed on suspicion of battery after rushing up and touching Brad Pitt on the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of the movie “Maleficent,” witnesses and police said, though Pitt was apparently unhurt and soon resumed signing autographs.

    Presidential autographs may go for $6K By: Carol E. Lee January 18, 2009 06:15 PM EST When Barack Obama stepped into the Oval Office with his presidential brethren recently, he had already agreed to take part in one of this exclusive fraternity’s secret traditions: autographing a limited number of copies of the photograph that captured the moment. The former, current and future presidents’ pact — to create only 250 copies of the photograph with all of their signatures — upped the ante on an image that was a keepsake before it was even taken. Early estimates value the signed pictures...

    Oh, what a difference a century makes. Ask the likes of Tom Cruise or Julia Roberts for their autograph, and you'd probably get a quick scribble. Just their name, or maybe a generic "Best wishes." Compare that to Frederick Douglass, the reknowned abolitionist who advised Abraham Lincoln on the dissolution of slavery. He signed his name on Aug. 9, 1894, for an Augusta man who asked him for his autograph, but Douglass also included this tender sentiment: "We differ like the waves, but we are one like the sea." When asked for his autograph, Samuel Francis Smith, who wrote the...
