As a good Catholic, I don't have to literally interpret Genesis
One of the few things I like about catholicism*. Anyway, I want to thank you for showing that just because you're religious doesn't mean you're not allowed to think logically. I'm not being sarcastic either: for some reason that's something I don't see much on the internet these days. Though that may be because many of the sites I frequent have a high percentage of American visitors**.
* For the record: I'm an atheist, and not particularly in favour of religions in general.
** And I'm Dutch. No disrespect meant to Americans, but the US seems to be one of the most fundamentally religious countries in the western world.
