GUEST,PeteBoom (at work) BS: Evolution as Heresy? (259* d) RE: BS: Evolution as Heresy? 29 Sep 05

Joe - That's similar to what the parish priest said when I was a wee fellow... longer ago than I want to consider. To put it another way, a book I read has a discussion on the origin of life. One fella was talking about different theories on how life began Another fella interrupts him saying it was all nonsense and that everyone knew GOd started life. The first one looks at him and said something like "No doubt about it. The problem is that none of the accounts say precisely HOW God did it." Seems to me, that pretty well sums it up. Ticked off one of the parental units of two of my granddaughters (a "good" Christian - by inference I'm a bad one) using the same basic logic in that exchange. The accounts are a little vague. No sense of humor in that one.

When folks get all wrapped up in what the Bible "says" I blink and say I did not realize they could read ancient Hebrew (as opposed to modern). THAT gets some folks downright testy! ;-)
