Creationism

Dr. Ken Ham is building a $25 million museum in rural Kentucky devoted to a Biblical perspective on creation. MSNBC carried the story. Part of the story included a "live poll" asking the question: How literally do you take the Bible? The results at the time I voted are shown below.

I'd have to go with "None of the above" personally.

To affirm that the sun "rises and sets" literally, would be false. It's true, but not literally, as some would twist it.

Options 2 and 3 are not orthodox options either--both denying the veracity of God's Word.

I'd be more along the lines of "The bible is completely true in everything that it affirms when properly and spiritually understood." Someone could certainly improve on my phrasing for clarity...

OK. Personally, I'd still have to go with "number 1."

I agree that "none of the above" would be technically correct. I believe that every word of the original writings is truly the Word of God and just as He intended it. Technically the parables weren't literally true, but the meanings were true.
