I found a great video from the Irish Dominicans, on reading Genesis. He explains the richness that sacred scripture offers, that so many are quick to overlook. For those of you who are open minded and are interested in reading scripture, you'll benefit greatly from this.

question for you religious nuts out there...
...If adam and eve are real...did they have a belly button?

then the Roman Catholic order shouldnt have hired painters to paint adam and eve, with Belly Buttons.
Oh wait, you're the authority, lets refer to you, why'd they paint them with belly buttons?

any actual discussion of theology going on which is what this thread seemed to be intended for.
Maybe the usual suspects could stop using this thread to disseminate their agendas and get discussing instead or else I will close this thread. Thank you kindly.

I don't think
most Christians today take the Bible quite so literally or are at all concerned about those trivial questions.

I wasn't refering to the original poster when I alluded to people with an agenda.
Now, I still don't see any theology discussion going on.

When the church split, the protestants rejected the pope's authority, amongst other things. But foolishly, the writings and works of the saints. Hundreds of years of patient study and work. When they did this, they also threw away the understanding of depth and richness scripture offers. So fundamentalism was born. Creationists being a good example.
It's explained well in the video.

If scripture is inspired by God, who is infinite creativity, then it only makes sense that it is, what the friar describes as 'an endless well of wisdom and truth'. This explains why there are over 30.000 christian demoninations.
