church politics and science
Now they are discovering the bones of pre-human species, and Christian fundamentalistist denounce such things as herasy and the teachings of the devil.
Doesn't anyone see a connection here?
Doesn't anyone else realize that the Bible is just a collected book of stories that were edited so that really ignorant people could in a limited way, understand the origin of man?
Trust me on this. God did not LITERALLY create earth in 7 twenty four hour days, and He did not create man overnight.
A day in biblical terms is an unspecified passage of time, but bronze age man could not phatom such things. So they wrote "day" to indicate a passage of time.
Yet literalists insist it was as the bible protrays it.
And thus I question that man is any more intelligent now than he was 2000 years ago.
