  1. translating the Bible

    Translating the Bible into as many naturally evolved languages as possible, I strongly believe in.

    But would there really be any point in translating the Bible into constructed languages?

    I'm sure there are many Spanish language copies of the Bible. This makes perfect sense.

    But, say for example, translating the Bible into Esperanto, which is a constructed language, and generally not used as a first language- I really think translating the Bible into ...
