Great chat, But Who's Oliver?
You stated Genesis as mythology.
I asked you why?
Now we're in the Twilight Zone.
What's the point?
Have a lovely Day
Genesis is not compatible with what we know of the history of the universe and of life on earth. It IS just a myth, this for me is undeniable.
Of course people can deny whatever, even the Holocaust or the moon landing. But I personally cannot possibly consider Genesis as factually true. In that I am coherent with my own religious (Catholic) upbringing that sees it as metaphor.
Myths are metaphors. They shouldn't be believed literally. To take Genesis literally would imply polytheism, because "Elohim" is a plural. It would imply that these Elohim are nasty and dissimulative, lying to Adam. Elohim who curse entire species because some girl ate some sodding fruit. Elohim who believe that the knowledge of good and evil should not be given to man. Elohim who created the world in 7 days when we know for a fact that it's not possible, and that evolution took billions of years...
Myths are also works of art. They are beautiful and meaningful poetry. It's a better way to look at them, and more respectful, than to assume them literally true.
