    I have some sympathy with the YECs. They didn’t put the absurd stories in the Bible, the stories were there already. And sophisticated theologians may have known not to take them literally, but I heard no hint of that when I was attending an Anglican church regularly in the 1940’s and 50’s. If anyone had told me then that the Flood never happened, I think it would not have been long before I thought “If the Bible is wrong about that, why should it guide our actions more than any other ancient book?”
