It is not untoward to attempt interpretation of Genesis. The Talmudists and
the Kabbalah both claim that Genesis contains allegories. This specifically
means that as far as the Jews are concerned, the true meaning is veiled and
MUST be interpreted from the surface material and WAS NEVER meant to be read
literally. Why don't we heed their opinions on their own written material?
