    Wow. I've discovered this amazing website called Google! It's incredible what you can find on it. You type in the words you are querying and it gives you answers. I think everyone should know about it. Look what happened when I typed "prescriptive literature" into it - HERE.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Prescriptive Literature

    Can you narrow the context down a bit? Prescriptive can mean laying down the rules and saying how something should be done.

    Where in post #1 did you mention that you were talking about the context of science?

    What made you think that it was specific to the writing in the Bible?
