Comment #358842 Ignorant Amos

I agree. It also had the distinct smell of strawman.Evolution doesn't disprove the existence of God; but it doesn't help it much either. I've always wondered why God would use such a brutal and horrible mechanism as Natural Selection to produce the diversity of life on this planet. Surely the TA DA! route seems much more sensible. I don't know if Cunningham addressed any of this, as I didn't see all of the programme

And as for reading Genesis as "metaphor". Groan. Perhaps Cunningham should go through the whole bible and mark up what's metaphorical and what's to be taken literally. It would solve a few problems, and perhaps reduce the number of Christian denominations in the process...
