Michael Matt is clearly vexed by the poor showing of Cardinal Pell in this debate.

He relieves his feelings by lashing out at the 'insufferable' 'dolt' Dawkins in a manner neither kind, accurate, rational nor Christian.

Perhaps Matt could explain to his readers how he would have answered these tricky questions. Would he espouse the literal inerrant truth of the Bible? The metaphorical reading? Something in between?

His problem is, whichever course is taken, the weakness of biblical claims and yarns is now so plainly exposed to scrutiny that the theologian has nowhere safe left to hide, (metaphorically).
