Literally lying

What more can one say?

This is almost what Charles Kingsley of the Water Babies wrote to Phillip Gosse in 1858 about his book Omphalos, in which Gosse argued that God had created the earth in 4004BC with a great appearance of age

One thought on “Literally lying

  1. joenbjerregaard

    I don’t like the expression book of nature, because it implies to me that the account of nature is delievered “once and for all” like the Bible. But the whole controversity is amazingly strange to me. That you have this short high etnocentric and strange/symbolic account in hte first chapters and then try to read today’s known creation into it. I am lost for Words. And somehow these Guys manage to give the expression that they believe the Bible more than those that actually interpret it.
