My point is, ultimately you have people making their subjective decision of what to include and what to exclude.

The usefulness of the climate bible will only be apparent if/when predictions come to pass.
If you're thinking of the Council of Nicea, they found the Bible over-full and gave it a good haircut.

Objecting to subjectivity is pointless? :shrug:

Future proves the past, but then the Flat-Earthers discover the Mud Flood.

Without freedom of speech we wouldn't know who all the idiots are.
