Buggsy's Genesis Account

Buggsy wrote:

The Garden of Eden is the story of human conception with the expulsion from the Garden being the story of human birth into the world of moral conflict and dualities.  We are the characters (right here and now) portrayed in the Genesis story.

Scott replies:

That is certainly one way to approach the Genesis story.  I take a Jewish approach, there's no one way to view Scripture.  I actually like Buggsy's view, but not to the exclusion of other views, including the traditional and literal view.

2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
