Bible should be capitalised, shouldn't it?

ok, so it´s Bible. i´m not a friend of capital letters.

but could the one who tagged this as a lie, quote the verse of the bible where it states that jesus wasn´t a raptor?

That was Scott - you'll have to ask him his reasoning.

IMHO “offensive” would work better here than a “lie”, because the sentence, though not 100% lie (well, it’s hard to deny Bible does not contain such negative statements), it’s provocative and potentially offensive for believers.

i must contradict: bravesentry.com is not as relevant to huge parts of mankind as the bible or jesus. "jesus was a raptor.", which this sentence implies as a possibility, is a pretty bold theory, at least in comparison to "john roberts owns bravesentry.com.". the above sentence is a subtle means of blasphemy, while "Nowhere in the Bible does it state that BraveSentry.com isn't owned by John Roberts." is just a statement of obvious thruth without relevance.

but of course i must admit that one is more likely to need sentences like "Hello, how are you?" or "What time is it?" than this one in everyday conversation.

@demetrius: ack.

Oh, you gave the idea how to tag it! “Blasphemy” :)))

Is the syntax correct ?
I would have said "Nowhere [...] is it stated that [...]" and not "Nowhere [...] does it state [...]".

But I'm no native

I think the syntax and grammar is fine. I also think the 'lie' tag should come off.
