    Jim, this is not the way one talks that in a public forum. Several of us
    have tried to do what you asked, but did not get anywhere with you. Read
    book-length reconciliation as several of the people you attack have
    done. It is not just "one single constructive idea", it is more than
    that. Several of us have told you that one does not read the Bible as a
    text book for geology or any other science. It is not that type of a book.
    Besides, "truth" is not exactly according to facts, but more like
    "faithfulness." I have said before that God is faithful, which means that
    He did not use 21st century explanations to people living 3000 years ago.
    Also, there are different types of language as several people on his list
    have told you. Poetry is not written in scientific language as others told
    Please, listen.
