These questions cut to the core of the YEC/OEC divide, as I see it. To
accept as literal only the miracles which involve the virgin birth, the
resurrection, and other such miracles which comprise the core of
Christianity, and to reject the floating axe head, the reversal of the
path of the shadow cast by the sun, Genesis 1-11 etc. as allegory strikes
me as a disconnect within the theology of OEC.
It seems that we all have a disconnect somewhere. I find myself
disconnecting with science (as it's generally interpreted) in order to
preserve the integrity of the scripture. My feeling is that someday in
the hereafter we will understand that God did it just as He said he did,
and we will see how it all fits together, including the science.
