Everyone has a few near misses. :-)
My first reation is that you think every student CAN be comfortable with
such a view of Genesis. So why do the YECs propser? I would contend that
they are the ones who can't be comfortable with such a view. I obviously
share their concern. But to the more important thing,
Ps.23 is true but didn't "actually happen" (unless you
>eat grass), & Gen.1 & 2 are both true, but the the non-human animals
>were not created _both_ before & after man. But we've been over all
But see I don't think Genesis 6-9 is poetry. Everyone wants to talk about
Genesis 1 and 2 but my problem is more fundamentally with 6-9. It is of an
entirely different character.

At least we can agree here.
