Your "factual knowledge" is really "evolutionary interpretation of the data
within the assumption of the mythology of Naturalism." This lack
discernment between fact and interpretation is the very thing which Morton
(and you) seems to be incapable of comprehending. Within "sound Biblical
thinking" means that scientifically acquired data is interpreted within the
Biblical paradigm. Thus the bible is the basis for interpretation of the
data. It is read as it makes sense without the need to try to reinterpret
the Bible to fit the assumptions of mythological Naturalism.

The only rational position for one to take who really believes the Bible
teaches them is that interpretations of the data within the myth on
Naturalism must be false and no more to be trusted than sifting sand.
