Louis had a great sense of humor and loved to talk religion. He designed this 12- page, "New Bible" as a sort of tongue-in-cheek humorous look - but, as with all he did, there is a lot of truth to what he had to say.
From the Red Man to the WorldAs little boys and girls in school, we were taught that the Bible was the story of God, His Son, the Holy Ghost, angels, the Virgin Mary, Adam, Eve, Moses and other great saints. We were told that every story in the Bible is the Holy Truth. When a child is told that a certain story is the truth, the child accepts it as such. The years roll on. The child learns that it is necessary to believe in God, Jesus and all the other notables in the sacred book. Why is it necessary to believe? To make sure, the youthful searcher of the truth looks up the word in the dictionary. Believe means: to accept as true, to suppose, assume; to have faith in. In other words, it is not a state of knowing. It is not knowledge. To believe does not mean to know.

Why is it necessary to believe? There must be a doubt in the gospels. If one knows of the existence of anything, then it's not necessary to believe in it. One knows. If one sees a house on top of the hill, it's not necessary to believe there's a house on top of the hill for he sees the house so he knows. That's knowledge in the simplest meaning of the word. It is necessary to make these simple explanations because certain words and terms are used without analysis of the meaning. For example: doctrines and dogmas are used a lot in religion and they mean the same: belief. Such as the doctrines of hell, devil, purgatory, sin, etc. They are called doctrines (beliefs) because no one knows if they exist. If the people knew that these doctrines (or dogmas) do exist, then they wouldn't be called doctrines for they would be known to exist. They would be called knowledge or true facts. No one knows if hell of the devil exist. Preachers try to get evil men off the hook by saying they're not responsible for their evil deeds, it's the devil who made them do it! In a court case, the clergy could not prove the existence of hell and the devil.
Since the accounts in the Bible are beliefs only and not real knowledge, it is necessary to make and develop another Bible which contains real facts and true knowledge. The kind of evidence required, needed and desired is visual evidence. In brief, the believer shall have to trot out the devil so we can all see and know, i.e. he becomes true knowledge. Also, one look at a real hell shall convince us that it exists. Hell and the devil were invented 5,000 years ago by Egyptian priests and to this day they have not been proved to exist. The Holy Mass, Indulgences and purgatory were introduced to the Roman Catholic Church by Roman Emperor Constantine I in the year 336 A.D. during the big Church Council at Laodicaea. He had just conquered the Persians and wiped out the Hithraists who had practiced the Mass for 900 years until they were extirpated from the face of the earth by the Roman Legions under Constantine. The Mass, Indulgences and Purgatory are doctrines (beliefs) which have yet to be proved as being true facts and real knowledge.
