Excuse me mr. witty, why for example gold has a symbol Au? Becouse of "gold" or becouse of latin "Aurum"? Many of chemicans still use latin names. Imo although symbols should be accepted.

I feel sorry for anyone who is so behind the times that they think pointing out the Bible is a work of fiction, something that has been well established for 2000 years now, is done to appear "edgy." (and then parrot some trendy, dareisay "edgy"-sounding, phrase to articulate this point of view)

"What can we do to appear hip to the kids today and sell them more 7-Up?"

"Why don't we quote David Hume? Tweens love David Hume!"

@kalbahamut, the Bible is historically accurate and even if you don't believe the doctrine or the prophecies, it is still mostly not a work of fiction.

It is not. Try reading some book other than the Bible sometime, and you might know this. This observation was last edgy sometime around the late Bronze Age.

Surely hydrogen was mentioned in the second book of Maccabes: "Verily, I say unto you, two hydrogen atoms met at the forum and one saith unto the other 'Hey, I think that I have lost an electron!' The other replieth 'Verily?' And the first respondeth 'Yea. I'm positive.'"

I think brimstone is mentioned. Is that why sulfur is on here, or does the word sulfur actually appear in the Bible?

Many English translations say sulfur.

Level 81

It just depends on the translation. I grew up with the King James version, so "brimstone" is what comes to mind for me, but plenty of other versions use "sulfur," especially the more modern ones.

It’s a huge shame that the most liked comment of JetPunk has basically been hidden from the comment section. To find it nowadays, you must scroll all the way down, click “load all comments”, wait, and scroll all the way back up. It’d be optimal if comments could be sorted by most popular/newest on top so that popular comments, as well as new comments, can easily be seen.
