In the book Mankind's Search for God, the WT says the following:
The oldest portion of the Bible predates all of the world's other religious writings. - chapter 1, paragraph 27.
From a little Google searching, I read that other religious writings predate the oldest portions of the Bible. Which is it? Can someone point me to information that would help clarify. Is the WT statement true? If it is not true, how would a JW defend the statement?
