Humanist Press is the publishing house of the American Humanist Association, providing material for the humanist/freethought/atheist market since 1995.

With the largest print book seller in the United States now selling more ebooks than paper books, it was time the freethought movement invested in the future of publishing so that we can remain relevant and accessible to readers in the U.S. and around the globe.

With new ebooks becoming available on a bi-monthly basis, Humanist Press will have a regularly expanding catalog of interest to atheist and agnostic humanists everywhere. Visit

@Ezra: touche!! It really is hilarious when read satirically. Or in Lego form.
Comment by David M. Beadle on April 8, 2011 at 2:20pm
It's not us making you laugh. It's that satirical book on god called the bible.

I really don't want to dwell on the horses and the asses but that bible passage made me "perplexed"....and perplexity REALLY IS the beginning of knowledge.  Perplexity to all!  Pass it around.  The purpose of that bible passage seems to be either an instructional manual OR a preventative measure.  Not exactly sure about that one.

@ all of you: you guys have totally made my day. I can't stop laughing.

It sure shows how the "New International Version" of the Bible differs from the one I located! Spicy!  Who knew?  I just googled 'biblical scriptures' and found myself transported to a Church of LDS website.... uncharted territory, indeed.  And not as descriptive as the "New International".  But easy to use for research purposes....

No really. That's the NIV translation. I don't make these things up.

Comment by David M. Beadle on April 8, 2011 at 1:42pm
Here's the NIV version
Ezekiel 23:20 (New International Version, ©2011)

20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.

Wow...that was funny and shows how this sort of subtle humor doesn't always play well in a forum like this one.  Sarcasm needs a bit of 'splainin'.


I looked up Ezekiel 23:20 out of pure curiosity from a biblical scripture website...because who knows where my old dusty bible from the '70's is at this exact moment... and, boy did I get a surprise.  It was much more vague that a previously mentioned version but I must share it anyway:

"For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses."


THAT, my friends, is in the Bible.  I must not have had a bible lession concerning that particular 'issue' when I was a kid.

Wow. Duped. I guess a better do more detective work next time. Nice one, Tim.
