I would much prefer to read an opinionated SAT essay topic, I can google any subject I want and get a hundred different view points or an author regurgitating scientific themes.
I mean who cares what science spouts they are constantly being proven wrong on a daily basis. Religion is just the other side of the same coin, it can be interpreted however one wants to interpret it.
I would rather read what someone thinks or believes, I've read textbooks and many different religious books. It is the same old tired rhetoric, let me know what you think?
