Just a Heads Up

A lot of people have assumed that this is the book of Mormon because it is used by the New Canaanites. Considering that there is a Crucifix it is extremely unlikely that it is the Book of Mormon (unless one was to consider that after the Divergence Mormon's changed their stand on the cultural imagery concerning crucifixes). It's most likely that the Scripture is just a Bible that the New Canaanites use because they don't have access to the Book of Mormon.

Question regarding wikia policies...

"We don't put real-world weapon references on article pages, unless it's the same name as the real-world weapon, or if is mentioned by a developer that the ingame weapon is intended to represent a specific real-world weapon," even if it's blatantly obvious.

Why is it different for this? (Referring to the statement that it is possibly the bible). Is it explicitly stated in the game, in the Fallout world, or by developers that it is the bible?

You're not the only one who thinks this, yet if you change it you will have a hell of a fight from the religious folk. User:AvatarUser talk:Avatar 16:18, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
^I'm religious and I don't care that you changed it. Makes sense to just not include any references to real life texts. I only made corrections to what was already there. Deleting it entirely is fine.~Bana 20:22, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
Well, what other religious text could it be? Developers don't name weapons after real-world weapons because they might need to make them different for gameplay reasons, I can't really see that applying here. --Lugiatm (talk · contribs) 14:25, June 3, 2011 (UTC)
There is about 4-5 books that Mormons consider to be religious scripture. Plus, because of divergence there could be ones that don't even exist in our world. But as you said, there should be no reason for the devs to not name the Bible as the Bible for the same reasons as they do for guns. So the fact that they don't name it the Bible says it all really.

Well, we have confirmation on what book it is [1]. Can it be added to the page now? --Lugiatm (talk · contribs) 10:32, June 13, 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, but that confirms nothing in regards to the item "scripture". However, it does require being added to the Bible page as a reference that the Bible does still exist in the Fallout universe. User:AvatarUser talk:Avatar 19:22, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

Rather disappointing....

It is odd that Scripture does not confer any benefits on the player, since other culturally significant books, such as the Paradise Lost that the player can receive from Tulip in Underworld in Fallout 3, do bring such benefits. Even as a total non-believer, I find this inconsistent. At the very least, it should grant a +5 speech or something of that sort, reflecting the centrality of the Bible to English rhetoric.

Speculating, perhaps that's the point--it doesn't provide any benefit. 68.41.165.141 04:21, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Reading NPCs

I was in the Sorrows' camp when I saw Waking Cloud, Joshua Graham and Daniel reading Scripture together. I just laughed. Not at them being religious, as I am a Christian, but at what looked like a tribal, a mummy and a farmer all in a bible study. --Delta1138 SnooPING AS usual I see 16:15, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

True.

Really?

"Evidence suggests that this is the Bible," Really..... With what the rest of the statement says and the fact it's called scripture, shouldn't that be a case of 'duh'? Voy101 08:04, November 6, 2011 (UTC)

Mormonism considers the Bible to be just one part of scripture, so... no. 50.113.107.91 09:07, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
