Some theistic (and secular) evolutionists have argued that the 'days' mentioned in the creation account in Genesis are 'metaphorical' or 'symbolic' and not meant to be taken literally.
Yet, Moses writes in Exodus 20:11 -
For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
So, are we supposed to work for the alleged billions of years some
evolutionists claim it took GOD to create the universe and life, and then rest AFTER those billions of years????
Obviously, the days in Genesis are meant LITERALLY.
Also, if Adam and Eve were merely 'symbolic' of humankind and not literal human beings, why does the Bible give their lineage down to Jesus???
Obviously, Adam and Eve were literal people.

Yes, I agree, the stories in the bible are meant to be taken literally. They just aren't true.

Metaphors don't work that way moron.

Genesis was not written by Moses.
Adam and Eve did not exist. Odds are neither did Moses.
The lineage for Jesus was made up to give him legitimacy.
The creation story in Genesis is a fairy tale for morons.

The first two lines are comedy gold by themselves, and would be eligible for a "fundamentalism in a nutshell award". Do they still give those awards?

So, if knight-in-black-leather's hypothesis about the events of Genesis is literally true, then could he explain Lilith, who apparently was created by God, as Adam's mate, before Eve...?
By his argument, Lilith must be defined as a literal person, like Adam & Eve, & her "airbrushing" out of Genesis, & possible later "Demonisation", sounds like a attempt by Man to edit God's holy word...

For the same reason that Caesar thought he was the great grand child of Aphrodite. That somebody believes he or she is descendant from somebody, doesn´t make it true.
