What do you consider to be "truth"? Why is Ge.1-11 in the
Bible? Certainly not to tell us history. Since we are in the middle of
moving I don't have the necessary time to say more than that, but I am 100%
sure that God did not speak to people living 6000 years ago in scientific
language, nor just to tell us how He made His world. Also, I am convinced
that He spoke in a language they understood, about concepts they understood.
The whole Bible is the story of how God wants us to be close to Him, but
also how we should live responsibly.
