Steve Smith, how stupid is you?

Sport Illustrated does a regular “bit” known as the Pop Culture Grid, where they ask a few athletes from various sports the same series of questions related to recent events, random facts about themselves, and obviously pop culture.

Typically the answers are formulaic and boring, but occasionally an athlete shows them self to have a good sense of humor or be very interested in hot news or current events, so it can be somewhat interesting at times.

And obviously those who are more religious tend to find a way to mention jebus, zeus, FSM, or which ever delusion their god belief tells them to fawn over. Typically these are a bit groan worthy, but benign.

However in this recent edition Steve Smith (Giants WR) had a comment which I first glossed over, but apparently it stuck in my head as odd, because the next day I wanted to see exactly what he said again, as something about it seemed wrong, but I could not put my finger on it from memory.

In this edition one of the questions asked was “favorite author” and Steve Smith’s answer was “Jesus: The Bible”. Now does this mean that he believes the jebus himself wrote the bible? The old and new testaments? Just the gospels? Which parts precisely does he think jebus wrote? Does he understand that NO scholars at all share this view? Does he understand that others wrote the books that became the bible decades after jebus’ “life and death” and he was just trying to make a point that he loves his delusion (sorry, I mean religion)?

It just raises so many questions… Steve Smith, how stupid is you?
