    I just find it fascinating at the lengths people will go just to adhere to a
    peculiar interpretation of scripture and think it is science.

    The following, from my categorized list of articles

    "I have been shown that, without Bible history, geology can prove nothing.
    Relics found
    in the earth do give evidence of a state of things differing in many
    respects from the
    present. But the time of their existence, and how long a period these things
    have been in
    the earth, are only to be understood by Bible history. It may be innocent to
    beyond Bible history, if our suppositions do not contradict the facts found
    in the sacred
    Scriptures. But when men leave the word of God in regard to the history of
    creation, and
    seek to account for God's creative works upon natural principles, they are
    upon a
    boundless ocean of uncertainty. Just how God accomplished the work of
    creation in six
    literal days, he has never revealed to mortals. His creative works are just
    incomprehensible as his existence."  Ellen Gould Harmon White,  1864
