Not surprisingly there are two 'givers and takers' state tables that produce almost opposite results.

The major differences is that one considers all military spending as giving uniform benefits to all citizens while the other does the same with the highway system.

Both lists are compiled by lying sacks of shit.

It was a full tilt edit. How did the poor old lady giving a single copper story show up in John? It was never there before the edits. There are multiple fragments that cover the verses affected. It wasn't there before Nicea. They just paraphrased it from Mark.

They fully consolidated the bible. Synchronizing 'good' gospels while burning others etc.

If they had used a Saratoga (or any of it's sisters) it would have continued on in a straight line, leaving plastic parts in it's wake.

They were banned from demolition derby, because the metal they were made of was only technically sheet metal (should have been called plate).

Also the BelAir was an empty shell. No motor, no trans. Agenda driven testing.

The bible was last edited by the council of Nicea in about 250AD. It gets re-translated regularly. Look at the various translations of 1st Timothy 2:12 for how politics can affect that. Who decided to remove 'she should be quite'?

By your standard, that makes the bible about 1/10 as reliable as the Hindu books about flying elephants having battles.

Always try to do things in chronological order; it's less confusing that way.
