The Bible is old. Very old. I believe the bible is obsolete and does not fit into today's society.

Good luck!

Obsolete: "no longer in general use; fallen into disuse:" (1)

Many people today read the Bible. Millions in fact. This is because the Bible is sacred to two main religions of the World. Judiasm and Christianity. This includes Billions of people. Likely becuase of this the Bible is the Best selling book of all time and averages 100 million copies sold each year. (2)

Clearly the Bible is "in general use."

We cannot thence claim the Bible to be obsolete. The resolution is negated.

PRO should have defined what was meant by obsolete. It looks like a couple rounds will be wasted on a lexical argument based on what has thus far been written.
