    Sex isn't only about reproduction. It's not that in any primates. It's primarily a way to form emotional bonds between people. The reproduction is just bonus. The evidence is that we can and do have sex even when the female isn't able to reproduce.

    Notoriety often makes best sellers. I was volunteering in an op-shop when these books came out. The flood of them that were donated suggests that not many people thought it was worth keeping. The few people I talked to about it didn't talk about the ideas in it or other aspects, like literary value. They just wanted to make sure everybody knew they'd read it.
    It's one of the best selling books of all time. Of all time. Notoriety alone can't do that.

    Oh, really? Then explain the massive worldwide sales of The Bible, most copies of which never get opened, much less read.

    Because some people think it is high status to give the impression to have read it, or to be reading it. I think the opposite can be said of FSG

    Easy, groups that seek to expand Christianity's influence buy bibles by the freighter load and then give them out to random people or to groups that will use them for this purpose. We must also consider that churches ideally will have enough bibles for most of the attendees to follow along, creating a demand for bibles for people who might not actually be interested in owning one directly.

    Fun fact: The bible is the most often stolen book in the world.
    Sure, shooting them in the back is illegal in those circumstances, but e cop getting convicted is not doing any good to the dead guy.

    Sure, we've all probably seen Gideon's Bibles. But even I have 3 or 4 family bibles sitting in my house right now.

    So far, I haven't been to a single church that provided bibles to its congregants. Even the Mormon missionaries don't pass them out. It's been decades, literally, but sure, I remember some groups passing out tiny tiny extremely abridged versions of the new testament on street corners. But not for decades.

    Complimentary bibles were common in any church I would visit when I was little. I remember sitting there bored out of my mind, flipping through the thin pages trying to occupy myself. As for people passing out little bibles? That's still a thing, it happened around my highschool on more than one occassion. Maybe living in AZ at the time had something to do with it.

    Hymnals in the pews? Yes. Bibles? not so much. Although I believe adults were expected to bring their own. It was a big deal to be given a bible. And family bibles were often (and may still be) regarded as containing legitimate family documents. It's where births, deaths, and marriages were recorded, especially prior to the days when most people were born in and died in hospitals.

    Is this the derail least in keeping with the OP in the history of the board?

    No shit. It's almost insulting that you would think a 67 year old nurse would think that sex is primarily about reproduction. Did you forget that I mentioned that two of my 80 year old patients were trying to have sex. Unfortunately, the guys didn't have any Viagra and they needed it. But, sex is about a whole lot more than intercourse, so maybe there is hope. And I admire bonobos so much that I even contribute a little money to the Bonobo Conservation Initiative.

    Now can we please stop talking about bibles? I gave them up when I was about 19, and if I should ever want to read one, ew, I can find just about any of the many different versions right here on the Internet.
