Re: That's central to the issue (DA Morgan)
I know of no line in the Bible that points out that it is a sin to have a grope session with a teenage cheerleader on the back of an elephant when you are an 80 year old one-eyed hunchbank. Does that make it ok?
What the heck are you talking about?
If you want to claim that a lack of comment doesn't preclude ... there is also nothing in the Bible, Khoran, or Torah that precludes invisible purple rhinos hiding under your kitchen table.
You're right - nothing precludes it. So what has to be revised? Mike seems to be claiming that the religions are going to have to "re-write" something. I asked him why? You answer with a non-answer. Please engage your brain and stay on point.
But people still connected with reality by more than a thin thread know that those who claim to be experts on the subject of the Bible's contents, and its interpretation, make claims that clearly preclude it.
What the many theys say doesn't matter. It wasn't the subject.
It doesn't say life was created on Mars either does it? Or in the oceans on Io. Or on Sirius B. Or on a planet circling a star in M51.
Doesn't say it wasn't either? Doesn't address the matter at all so far as I know. So what has to be re-written?
Perhaps the books don't need to change.
