Someone here,(posted at beth) I can't remember who, thought I was being disrespectful when I refered to the Old Testicles. The word "testament" comes from testicle...from the practice long ago of having men swear a solemn oath by each placing a hand against the other's testicles as they swore. Well...it WOULD discourage lying...unless of course, but let's not go there. A Testament therefore is a compilation of Truths, set down.
To give "testimony"...to leave a last will and "testament"...to "testify"...to be the object of a "testimonial"...to get "testy" all refer to testicles and the sacred position they once held as an article men would swear truth and honesty by. Placing ones hand on the bible while swearing to tell the truth has replaced placing ones hand against the other's testicles.
Therefore, to call the Old Testament, by it's more accurate name, Old Testicles, is perfectly scientific and accurate...as is calling them old guys Diddlers, cause they did diddle their daughters. You can have them for ancestors and holy men...I'll take Ashur.
