    I think I've figured out one of history's long and mysterious unsolved capers
    Why were the Germans during WW2 always asking to see someone's papers ?

    Give it up Good for Christianity's " Man of the Year " , ( 1456 that is ) Johann Gutenberg
    The German inventor credited in history by " literally pressing " God's Word !

    Yes folks ! , The Gutenburg Press came to be and Herr Gutenberg gets the title
    For " mechanically " printing and reproducing the famous " 42-line Bible " *

    With the use of a " type set " and " precast metal " symbols and letters
    This allowed the work to be preformed over and over a little better

    Johann is credited with his own formula for an " oil based ink " for his press
    It adhered better to the numerous " Ens & Em's " in the process

    Germany was the country of origin who helped " spread the word " ?
    I lost that bet last week thinking to myself , that's was absurd !

    But the history books , " books with words printed on paper " proved them right
    They should of paid homage to their ancestor and " kept God in their sights "

    How could a bunch of people " campaign " on the notion of " atheism " ?
    That sounds like a good recipe for one's own " combative " cataclysm !

    The printed word , " documents on file " that help strengthen and to clarify
    That was ultimately their down fall , by rejecting God and giving him a " black eye "

    Nowadays we can see these " thugs " trying to rewrite history going out of their gourd , but
    Thanks to Johann , The Pen along with The " Printed Word " is still Mightier than the Sword !

    * The original number of copies of this work is unknown; some 40 are still in existence. There are perfect vellum copies in the U.S. Library of Congress, the French Bibliothèque Nationale, and the British Library. In the United States almost complete texts are in the Huntington, Morgan, New York Public, Harvard University, and Yale University libraries.

    Gutenberg Bible, also called 42-line Bible or Mazarin Bible, the first complete book extant in the West and one of the earliest printed from movable type, so called after its printer, Johannes Gutenberg, who completed it about 1455 working at Mainz, Germany. The three-volume work, in Latin text, was printed in 42-line columns and, in its later stages of production, was worked on by six compositors simultaneously. It is sometimes referred to as the Mazarin Bible because the first copy described by bibliographers was located in the Paris library of Cardinal Mazarin.
