How is that even remotely possible.

The whole book is a fairly tale, personal interpretation of an account of real or imagined events that transpired who knows when. Most biblical content is subject to interpretation, while some of which is to be taken literally ... so tell me, how can DNMC possibly be a consideration.

The challenge was Biblical... pretty open ended don't you think.

Open ended would mean no DNMC... However, if the challenge were truly for a fictitious book, say "War and Peace" by Tolstoy... and there were shots of robots and spaceships, well that would be DNMC because it's not in that book.

The Bible is not a collection of jumping off points for the imagination. It's a very clear, nearly all literal account of history, first of the Jewish people and secondly of the formation of the Church. You may disbelieve it as true and call it fictitious, BUT it does says what it says and most of it is not up for interpretation (except by those who don't want to believe yet at the same time claim they do believe).

Anyway, there are some that contain "stories" or images that are not found or represented in the Bible, so those are DNMC (to me). Some were based on other interpretations that are incorrect (many paintings we have for example).

Regardless, I decided I am not voting on this challenge, but intend to comment on each entry (when I can stomach it).

I'm sure they really care about your convoluted interpretations of their images. The sooner you realize that everyone interprets the bible or what is considered biblical differently than you, the better.

What is with this constant religious debate? Seriously. Why?
What's worse... Religious zealots and evangelicals? Or atheists?
I used to hate the proselytizers, but I think it is the atheists. Both are so condescending. Both think they got it nailed and both look down their noses at the other.

And yes, of course you can DNMC.
Show us your personal take on a famous biblical scene (Moses opening the Red Sea, Jonah and the Whale, Noah’s Ark, the Tower of Babel, etc.
A scene. The book is full of scenes.
A picture of Jesus, for example, is not a scene. Jesus on the cross, Jesus throwing out the money changers... Those are scenes.

And there are some really great scenes, great photos as usual.

Then perhaps you wish to buy me out of my remaining membership since you feel I don't have the right as a member to comment on any image based on my impressions of the image through the filter of my personal beliefs, experiences, and preferences the same as any other member.

That because you're a religious bigot you have the right to stifle those you disagree with. Well played.

You are the one who is commenting on image integrity based on your beliefs and saying weather you can stomach them, not me. I'm just enjoying the entries.

...and I for one would be quite happy if there was no mention of religion whatsoever...now that would fix the problem for all now would it not?

Not sure about that... did you ever come across this voting rule that says one cannot:

. give an entry a lower score because you believe it violates the Challenge Rules.

Yeah, I'm guilty of wading into the fetid religous debate pool.
My mistake. Sorry.

Yes
My understanding is that this is about editing rules. I cannot score an entry lower if I think it should be a DQ for advanced editing in a basic editing challenge.
But I should:
...consider the challenge topic when voting, and adjust your my score accordingly

There are some that will find this impossible...err hard to believe, but the scores I doled out in this challenge were some of the highest ever.

Could it be that 31.gif DrAchoo was right?

...and considering that there are but 144,000 total spots available in heaven, and the earth is only 6000 years, that would mean an average of 24 souls per year were granted access to Heaven since the dawn of time.

When we consider that the Catholic church already has something like 8,000 saints, I don't like the chance that the rest of the population has of getting in.

It is a good story though. :O)

One comment. Alas, the person makes an incorrect assumption.
