Bible Literalists

You know, I used to think that Bible literalists were absolutely insane. How in the world could somebody possibly believe that every word in a book published my many men (and maybe a woman or two) over the past few thousand years was 100% fact - including the stories of Adam and Eve, Noah and the flood, etc?

But then I spoke at length with somebody who is a Bible literalist. His simple words: "God was able to create the cosmos, the Earth, and man... Don't you think He could find a good publisher?"

Of course, that is still going under the assumption that a god of some sort created the universe. I still think they are wrong, and that the Bible is simply docudrama and a collection of allegories as factual as Aesop's Fables, but at least the phrase "bats**t insane" no longer comes into play.
