The Christianity you criticise here is not universal or historical. Your understanding of Christians and the Bible is fundamentalist. You see it the same way as Christian Fundamentalists do, literally. I too criticise Fundamentalism and see it as mistaken.

You can find Christian traditions going back 2000 years that do not see Adam and Eve or the 6/7 day creation as literal. The same traditions do not accept eternal burning in Hell torment. They also accept evolution as the means of creation. The group that have the most consistent position here as far as I can tell is the Easter Orthodox Church. Unchanged for centuries.

As a UK Anglican most of the people I know accept evolution and as far as I can tell so do most of our clergy.

You have a very narrow understanding of what Christianity is. My other posts show where I am coming from.
