Hath there come upon man (ever)This one is an easy one.
any period of time in which
he was a thing unremembered ?
We create man from a drop of thickened fluid to test him;
so We make him hearing, knowing.
We have shown him the way,
whether he be grateful or disbelieving.
We have prepared for disbelievers manacles
and carcans and a raging fire.
The righteous shall drink of a cup
whereof the mixture is of Kafur

Name That Holy Book #03: Thickened Fluid?
Here's a snippet from one of my favorite holy books. Over all, this particular holy book is mostly non-sensical, hard to comprehend, and just plain ol' bad writing. My favorite part about this book of scripture is its excessive use of "Lo!". Of course, keep in mind that English is not the original language it was written in. It was originally written in Vogon, but was plagiarized by a certain prophet and translated into his native tongue. Any guesses?
