Home Forums Everything Else Taking the Bible literally Reply To: Taking the Bible literally


I’m not entirely sure you understand what I was trying to say in my original post. I was mostly referring to Evangelicals and Fundamentalists who take the Bible word for word – that the Earth was made in 7 of our days (not billions of years) etc. – that kind of thing.

I’m not denying that there is an element of science in the Bible, but it really is not a step-by-step explanation of how some chemical reactions are exothermic and some are endothermic (for example) published by Houghton-Mifflin.
