As it stands, this is nothing more than another free ticket for a guilt trip. The ticket has been issued by a person--if the person actually exists--who doesn't even display the common courtesy of identifying himself/herself. According to this unnamed person, anyone who disputes what she/he has decided what it means to "really believe" in Genesis is doomed to an inferior relationship to God.
I was the one who kept the author anonymous, because I thought the story more interesting and thought provoking than just exactly who the author was. I have notified the author of some of the responses from this net and he is formulating a reply which he expects to have done by tomorrow. He has published a book which tells the same story. All that will be forth coming.
