I do disagree.

I’ll concede that the Bible has had an effect on history, but there are others that have had more.

Plus the effect it has had is mostly due to what people have done in its name and very little to do with whether it is true or not.

OK, so you don't see a problem with the bible being taught as mythology, along side the Greek mythology, Egyptian Mythology, Chinese Mythology, etc.

It's about being honest, although a lot of parents wouldn't see it that way.

It is not necessary to comment either way on the supernatural claims of the Bible to teach what they are and/or present their impact.

Are you reading anything on this thread? Obviously, I contend the Bible is the book, but I deliberately left that a bit open to invite others to make competing claims.

Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica by Newton
On The Origin of Species by Darwin
Common Sense by Paine
The Wealth of Nations by Smith

These 4 are far more important than the Bible in influence on history
