Just in case you weren't aware, a red-letter Bible is one in which only the quotations of Jesus are highlighted in red. So nobody had to "decide" which parts to highlight, the implication is that the highest value are given to the statements straight from the horse's (or deity's) mouth.

I wasn't aware of sex playing any major role in the Psalms, which are holy liturgical songs, though admittedly I've only read about half of them. I believe you are thinking of the erotic Song of Solomon, various sexual imagery in the prophesies of Ezekiel and Hosea, and historical/mythological narrative in Genesis, 2 Samuel, etc.

Perhaps he promised a lossless algorithm but it was lossy? That wouldn't take cleverness to expose, though. Perhaps it does something like split the file into two parts and hide the other deep in the computer, so it appears to have achieved a factor of compression twice what it should have been?

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
