    More ikea catalogues were printed last year than Bibles.

    ikea is a Swedish flatpack furniture store.

    Ikea catalogues are probably read more than the Bible.

    It does not surprise me, but it somewhat heartens me.

    After all Ikea is real and their products are real.

    The Bible is 99% fiction selling a product that does not exist.

    Yeah, the Bible isn't great on interiors and furniture, that's not to dismiss it! It comes into its own if you're interested in death and paranoia.

    Ikea offers cheap sturdy furniture, Swedish meatballs & cinnamon rolls.

    Bible offers guilt, genocide, slaughter, and misogyny.

    Are you really surprised at this?

    Happy to hear. The Bible has held a privileged place that it does not deserve for too long. Things are changing for the better though. I happen to be reading a book "The End of Biblical Studies" by a biblical scholar, Hector Avalos, who thinks it is time to get a bunch of scholars, himself included, and ministers out of their jobs and put them to do something more productive.

    Ikea sends me a free catalog in the mail every year...

    Meh. Bibles are probably online and on tablets for free everywhere. Unfortunately its influence is strong as we witnessed here with Pope-a-palooza here over the last week. It was making me ill to see this guy worshiped like he was on par with the Beatles or the Stones, at least they could put on a good show.

    In 2013 Ikea published 208 million catalogs (62 different versions in 43 countries) - more than double the amount of Bibles produced:

    Well for that matter they surely print WAY more WT magazines than bibles don't they?
