    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.
