Hi Bill, I would ask one question. How do we interpret from a different
historical angle, "In the Beginning God created the Heavens and the
Earth?"

If history is either true or false, why did the history text I used in

descriptions of the events and their causes? Indeed, why are there
differences in the descriptions of events in the gospels?
 
GRM: Probably mostly becauce they had different authors and different
publishers. :-) They also emphasized different aspects. That stll
doesn't mean multiple sets of actual events happened.

Granted that there is only one history. However, as you point out,
history told from different points of view -- as well as with different
objectives -- can seem quite different.
