How to make $ on the Holy Bible

There's about 10, 000 myths that have some relevence to someone, which myth gains the most dollars?

Some have staked their place on Young Earth Creationism, some others have gone for divine redemptions, giving up one's worldly assets when one of those old believers dies.

Others have opted for the cash now strategies of cable TV/internet, and sales of religious broadcasts on video, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir stell sells in the millions of CD's and DVD's a year, "shipping and handling extra".

America has become the factory of religious sales worldwide, thanks to the internet. We sell more millions of $ of worldwide religious propaganda than was ever forecast by Bible salesmen of the 18'th and 19'th century, (one of the most profitable sales lines for young men to enter into, if you read the history of religion in the USA, men sold more Bibles, women learned to play 10-20 hymns on the piano, and did their duty to God, and those salesmen carried a six-shooter, spent nights in northern Wyoming territory, or in southwest Utah, convincing those desperate settlers that the reason for the last year's crop failures were because of their straying from the Christian faith). These stories are all over the primary source documents in the history of the American West, hundreds of stories, thousands of incidents unfortunate endings for the tens or hundreds of thousands who went West between 1848 or so, and the late 1920's, when just about everybody west of the Mississippi River suffered, and had to deal with the automobile, and the gangsters, and the prohibition on liquor, instead of the prohibition upon con artists selling religion to those in bad shape, and taking their money and selling them "salvation". The religiour history of America, west of the Mississippi, an NPR production, just beginning into production, I'm not on board, but I heard about it, about 2-3 years down the line, we learn how America succummed to Christianity, instead of that-day science, which said "don't try to farm here".

Then the oil came in! Land changed hands quickly for 10--29 years, a Second World War, all was forgotten, or burried.
