Hope for those super-literalists, or those that only read the KJV

Almost everyone has come across a SUPER literalist student of the bible.  Or maybe you’ve come across someone who insists the only bible we should use is the King James version because it’s “authorized”. 

Well, they may be on to something.

As many people are aware, the King James version mentions “unicorns” several times.  Now, most people would jump to the conclusion that of course the word “unicorn” isn’t meant to indicate the mythological beast depicted in medieval tapestries, the beast that children of the 80’s cheered for as it drove the red bull into the sea, and so on.The Last Unicorn

Most would probably assume the word “unicorn” was meant to represent some other animal that had one horn, or perhaps looked as if it had one horn from the side.  Perhaps a wild ox, of some sort.

Ah, but not so fast!

Just recently a unicorn was discovered, and not in some remote place rarely traveled by the civilized world.

It was found in Italy.

So, without further ado, I present to you…the unicorn!

Cute, isn’t it?
