    I've recently completed what is, to the best of my knowledge, the first complete translation of the Bible into Pig Latin. This is the 319th translation of the entire Bible; the New Testament has now been translated into 845 languages, and parts of the Bible have been rendered into 1629 tongues.

    This translation is the culmination of millions of man-hours of work over the past 2000 years. I owe a tremendous debt to all those writers, translators, monks, scribes, pharisees and whatnot who came before me, and especially to King James and his coworkers, upon whose magnificent translation I have based this version.

    It is my sincere hope that this work will be of value to scholars, researchers, native speakers of Pig Latin, and all those who wish to further their understanding of scripture by seeing it presented in new terms. As it is said, "In-ay e-thay eginning-bay as-way e-thay Ord-way."

    The Catholic Church may wish to consider conducting Mass in Pig Latin, as it combines the solemnity of Latin with the accessibility of English.

    I hope this work will accelerate the movement toward incorporating Pig Latin into our educational system. Pig Latin is one of the easiest foreign languages to learn, and English is far closer to its Pig Latin origins than to its roots in classical Latin. In addition, the uses of Pig Latin encryption for e-mail security have barely been explored; the potential benefits are incalculable.

    Due to disk space limitations, currently only the following files are available in uncompressed text format:

    Enesis-gay.txt, the book of Genesis

    Ob-jay.txt, the book of Job

    Ohn-jay.txt, the book of John

    Uh-exactly how would "Et-gay a-ay i-flay." be rendered when 'translated' back into English?

    Have I rendered this accurately as: "Get a life!?" :rolleyes:

    What were the supporting manuscripts?

    Will we have to deal with the Ingkay Amesjay Ersionvay Only-way group in the future?

    Now that you're done with the Bible, what is your next project? The Dead Sea Scolls? The US Constitution? The Declaration of Independence???? This is utter foolishness, and Christians should know better than to waste their time with garbage like this. After all, who is going to be saved while reading the Bible in Pig Latin?

    The "Pig" part went away with the Old Testament; you may now have your "PIG" and speak "Latin", too! :D [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Some people are a little too uptight!! I just copied and pasted this info from a site that contains various things from the realm of "Humor and Weirdness". I don't think they expected anyone too take this so seriously, I doubt you will find the Pig Latin at any book stores in the near future. Take a deep breath, laugh and enjoy life!

    Seriously, though, whoever did this eatgra orkwa had to spend a lot of time in the Scripture to do it, and that had to be good for him!
