    I would like this to be completely open to interpretation.

    Most educated people would agree that the Bible (whatever edition) is a collaboration of human experiences and conscience. My question, however vague, is do we need a new chapter? To compensate for the dramatic changes in the human condition in the past century? Life has sure changed for us humans, and I was curious as to people's thoughts.

    Note: Though I know some might reply "why need a book of guidance?" or something along those lines, I would reply in my perception of the Bible; A collaboration of basic human knowledge gained from experience and written down.

    In Victorian times there was a popular bible published just for women and children...with all the horror, violence and pornography removed for polite genteel eyes.

    I think you've got a good idea about writing a new chapter of the Bible, but I feel as though there aren't enough SERIOUSLY practicing Christians in the world to take a new chapter of the Bible seriously. Most American Christians I've met would probably call it blasphemy because most have no idea what the Bible really is, even though a lot of Christians I know need a total reality check when it comes to applying their religion to their lifestyle. I could see two things happening if a good poet that was tight with "God" decided to write a new chapter of the Bible:

    1. People would seriously realize that they are studying and practicing an entirely dead religion, and that its time to think of present-day ways to keep a healthy spiritual life, while using the basic concepts and morals of their religion, NOT the absurd translations they've twisted out of the Bible to bash gay marriage/abortion/and many other ways people live their lives.
    2. The person who wrote the chapter would be beaten to death by blind bible thumpers that would rather prove they're right and their opponents will burn in hell for being wrong. Following the beating, the destruction of the chapter and the body of the writer.

    Best part of the bible:

    Council of Nicea, where jesus was decided to be Gods son instead of just a man.
