As you may remember, I wrote (Jan 27) the following in response to your posting of Jan 24:
In view of what you have written (in particular, your recommendation that we "would be better off ignoring the first ten or so chapters of Genesis"), I am wondering how you would proceed to adapt your paradigm to accomodate the hard facts that are indelibly associated with the prologue to these chapters. I have prepared an illustrated summary of these which you may find at
The empirical evidence I have put together under the heading "The Ultimate Assertion" is no figment of my imagination - as I'm sure you would agree. Genesis 1:1 is manifestly the most remarkable combination of words ever written - and a standing miracle. It surely follows that all theories relating to origins must take account of that - otherwise they become so much 'hot air'. Are you now prepared therefore to retract your recommendation that the early chapters of Genesis be committed to the scrap heap?
