Well said Rick_S. I've often wondered why some athiests think there`s no way `God` could have created evolution. He makes the whole universe, but natural selection is `beyond Him`? Lmao!
I view holy scriptures as possibly being from God, but filtered through im-perfect humans, thus subject to error. Also remeber the Bible and other books weren`t written in English, eh? Many things can get `lost in translation` or just plain messed up.
You know when Adam and Eve get kicked out of Eden, their sons (Cain and Able) took wives. Where did these women come from? eh? Yes the Bible, even Genesis, is a parable, not literal.

good point AntEconomist. I have always questioned the term "man made" as it stands to reason we are natural ourselves. If a colony of ants invented plastic, we'd call it a miracle of nature. But because we did it, its merely "man made".
