“If you have a Bible on your bookshelf, you may be a Christian.
If you have a Koran on your bookshelf, you may be a Muslim.
If you have a Torah on your bookshelf, you may be Jewish.
If you have all three, you are probably an atheist.”

    I have a Gideon bible from a hotel room but I’ve never bothered to get a Koran or Torah. I have enough incomprehensible literature on my shelf with just the one.
