Re: Delusional much?
No, you'll get some new unsupported claim.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Stile, my problems with atheism, and or atheists, is that they pretend to not believe in something, for one.
I pretend not to believe in sniggerwumps. How about you? Do you pretend not to believe in sniggerwumps?

Re: NIV
The real question is - why not preserve the originals if they were so important?
An even bigger question is why the God could not at a minimum leave a list of which books should be included or excluded? The reality though is that there is no one Universal Canon. In fact, the ONLY books that are common to all the Canon are the first five, the Pentateuch.

Re: trust
But the goal of the KJV bible was more that it be politically correct than biblically accurate.
James I & VI had a problem.
Christianity was the single biggest threat to both the new Nation of Great Britain and to the rule of Monarchy. He had full knowledge of just how serious that problem was based on the History of Edward, Mary, Elizabeth and of course his mother Mary. The fighting and terrorism between Protestant and Catholic and between Protestant sects had to be stopped, and one major problem was the proliferation of Protestant Bibles and Roman Catholic Bibles.
He needed a compromise, politically correct bible that could be imposed on all without overly offending anyone. His answer was the KJV, a bible that toned down the anti-Romanist rhetoric and supported the "Divine Right of Kings" a concept he invented and promulgated.
