I'm off for a week on vacation. In the meantime, I wanted to leave you with President Bush's comments last week about evolution. Based on what he says, it seems like he believes in some version of theistic evolution, although I think it could be argued Bush is aware that he doesn't have a very sophisticated understanding of the matter.
My "annoying" question is, how can the Bible not be "literally" true, but still have validity? Why should I trust what it says about salvation (a theological truth that I can't empirically verify) if it's full of incorrect statements about the world that I know? That idea has never made much sense to me. But I'm just a "simple theologian."
