Bible on the United States of America

Sarah Bowman
Sarah Bowman, read the Bible, still read it, also secular stuff

The Bible said not a single word about the United States.

I’m sorry if that disappoints you but what was there to say that would interest you? The Aztecs and Mayans rules the continent, as well as other people who never made it into the Bible. The great uncrossable Atlantic Ocean lay between the Mediterranean Lands (where the Bible took place) and the Americas to the west. To the east lay continents and alien peoples and the enormous Pacific ocean—all of which the biblical writers had no clue existed. Ptolemy might have had a clue but he wasn’t writing the Bible and the Bible writers weren’t educated enough to know.
