    I am trying to collect both American and British/Scottish books from the
    period written on science and the Bible. Both in the US and UK, there was
    as wide a variety of opinion then as today. Indeed, most of today's
    positions were initiated during this period. One position which is
    extremely rare today but which was widespread in the 1820s-40s is the belief
    in an old-earth AND global flood. Once the diluvuim (glacial till) was
    understood to have been generated by continental glaciers rather than the
    flood, that position had no legs.

    There was an American, Rendell who totally spiritualized Genesis--absolutely
    NO historical content whatsoever--which of course solved the science Bible
    problem, but did so rather trivially.
