    H'mmm ... Inerrant Scripture, including the divine creation of Adam out of
    the dust and Eve from his rib, does not "bear" on the biological theory of
    evolution which says that man descended from apes? What cloud does J. I.
    live on? If it was this easy Henry Morris would still be a hydraulic engineer.

    Perhaps he is just lowering the bar for inerrancy, preparing the way for The
    Inerrant Washington Post and The Inerrant New York Times. Or, for that
    matter, The Inerrant National Inquirer.
