YOU MIGHT ASK A JEW ABOUT CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALIST BELIEF IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. HE CAN GIVE YOU AN ANSWER; BUT REMEMBER - IN THE END, HIS ANSWER WILL STILL BE STEEPED IN RELIGIOUS BULLSHIT.
I just posted about a letter-to-the-editor I wrote on religion. It brought this clip to mind.
The Bible was written as a fable to control people; a story with a moral, for a people who lived in the desert and for whom a wheelbarrow was cutting edge technology. That there are people today that take it literally is fucking nuts. Like Black, I can't be gracious.
Science facts and religion are not compatable. Either you live in a world of makebelileve, or you live in the real world.
