Not everyone in the Bible was as wise as King Solomon.
You'd think Samson would have figured out his wife was out to get him after the first two attempts on his life. When God says, "Don't look," Lot's wife makes a pretty good example of why you should listen. Even David, a "man after God's own heart," made some pretty "blockhead" moves. From the IT S A FACT series, Wacky Bible Blockheads highlights "duh" moments in the Old and New Testaments, some you may know, others that may surprise. Astound your friends and maybe even inspire someone to pick up the Bible and explore these facts for themselves. Completely, 100% historically accurate.
