    KJV Crater Discovered in Northern England

    The crater was discovered by a Scottish couple on holiday to England, police said. Lyle and Katie McCrone were strolling through the woods when they noticed a depression in the ground. Upon closer examination, the couple discovered that the depression was actually a hole shaped exactly like the King James Bible. “It was perfectly rectangular,” said Lyle McCrone. “And the date 1611 was stamped at the bottom.”

    KJV-only scholars have been thrilled by the discovery. “We’ve known for some time that the King James translation is the only legitimate English Bible version. This only confirms it,” said Dr. Hank Conrad of the Center for Authorized Version Research. “It’s very encouraging,” agreed Rev. Jason Delancy. “No modern translation can boast this kind of origin.”

    SALISBURY, UK--British police announced yesterday the location of the KJV crater. The location, explained police captain William Lindt, is where the King James translation of the Bible fell from heaven. "There's this forest, see? Then there's this clearing, and then this hole in the ground," said Lindt. "I saw it and said to myself that it looks like the spot the Authorized Version hit, if it looks like anything at all."

      Hmmmm, a language not of this world, no wonder it is so hard to read out loud. It is all so perfectly clear.

      Great. Another excuse for a catholic shrine.

      Wait, I thought the KJV came down from Moses while he was riding with Elijah in the flaming chariot. Now I have to change my theology again. Stickin’ scientists.

      Don’t be so hard on the KJV.  If it was good enough for John the Baptist, then it’s good enough for me!!!

      Wow!  Maybe it is not what is seems…we assume that it was sent but what if it was being tossed out into the Heavenly garbage and the angel missed!  Remember, the devil was tossed out of Heaven and that was not a good thing?   Hmmmm.  Let’s see what the fair and balanced group at Fox News has to say about this.

      There was a similar discovery in the smokie Mountains where the 1956 Baptist Hymnal came to earth.

      Both the KJV and the article about it are easier to understand if you read them out loud in your best Scottish accent. (Works for Shakespeare, too!
