    In your post you linked the above views with YEC, but I certainly wouldn't
    be surprised if most Christian OEC's believed in at least one of the items
    on your list.

    What is a nonliteral interpretation of the floating axehead?

    Is Jesus walking on water in the same category as a floating axehead?
