The Bible has been altered, edited, reformed, and rewritten to fit the needs of those in charge of the church at various points in history. In fact the current King James Bible is vastly different than the version commissioned by Constantine in 331. The first printed version was not produced until the 1500’s, before that it was hand copied. Ever here of the telephone game? Darwin may not have been perfect in his ideas but considering the time in which he formed his theory, the tools at his disposal and opposition he faced I think he was pretty close.
I have a question for the creationists that read this. What about the dinosaurs? I don’t remember Job being beset with velociraptors on the road to Damascus or Noah trying to get a T-Rex on the ark. Yes I’ve read the Bible, many times. There are good themes and messages in the Bible just like there are in all religious texts. However to accept the Bible as absolute truth while denying the science that exists around you every day is folly.
