The Origin of Left & Right...

I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left". By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible: "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV). Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen. Can't get any simpler than that.
