I simply fail to understand how saying that the Scripture is relating a
dubious history should make people want to believe in either it or its
inspriation. I can find lots of books and creation myths that relate
dubious accounts of history, but I don't think they are very special or
very truthful.

Adam, Apes and Anthropology
Foundation, Fall and Flood
& lots of creation/evolution information
