The Westminster Confession of Faith appeals to the "light of nature"
(as well as many arguments from Scripture) to support the contention
that transubstantiation is incorrect. This use of physical evidence
to support a less literalistic interpretation seems like a good
parallel for the appeal to physical evidence in interpreting Genesis
1. My only attempt so far at applying this reasoning had an already
unreceptive audience, so I cannot tell if it is likely to sway others.
