Is a Liberal Interpretation of the Creation Story Compatible with Science? (1997)

The whole Bible, and Genesis in particular, was written at a time when people knew less about the cosmos than we presently do. For this reason, it is understandable that certain passages reflect a view of the world which has long since been discredited by modern science. And since these passages are now known to be untrue, the rational attitude is to reject them downright, because the very rejection of something false is always a step forward which leads us closer to the truth. Seen in this light, to obstinately cling to the Creation Myth, or to give it a clumsy reinterpretation, is irrational, dishonest, and totally unworthy of a lover of wisdom and knowledge.
