Exactly. And since the genre of Genesis is historical narrative, it must be taken literally.

Does that put the life of Moses into the Fantasy genre?

You mean the talking snake and flaming sword don't tip you off?

Yep. Bang on. Historical narrative. Just like Mallory's La Morte D'Arthur or Wace's Roman de Brut, which I have always taken literally.

Yeah, right...

So I guess Graves' "Claudius" novels, Cornwell's "Sharpe" series, MacDonald-Fraser's "Flashman" books, Berger's "Little Big Man" must also be taken literally, then.

So... have you seen "Life of Brian" at all?

Regardless of whether Genesis is "historical narrative" or not, history can never be taken as absolute facts. It is always somebody's interpretations of the events, and it will be updated and/or distorted over time.

Btw, don't the first and the second chapter in Genesis contradict each other? Which one is to be taken literally?

That username mad me thing of:
"Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been - Lives in a dream"
It ends with:
"Eleanor rigby died in the church and was buried along with her name - Nobody came
Father McKenzie wiping the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave - No one was saved

All the lonely people - Where do they all come from?
All the lonely people - Where do they all belong?"

@ Swedish Pagan

More like:

All the stupid people,
where do they all come from?

All the stupid people,
where DO they all belong?

The Bible is Bullshit

"All the stupid people,
where DO they all belong?"

On a barge... sailing away from my country.
