Origin of the terms Left and Right

I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left."

It's Biblical!

"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!
