You didn't defend your answer with some supporting evidence.

Reading comprehension is key.

There were from a long time ago, knew virtually nothing about anything farther than a few hundred miles away, knew nothing of science or what it would discover.

It is broken up into two major parts, the Old Part and the New Part.

While it has some great wisdom in it, some rubes take it literally, much to their dis-service, since little if any of it is literally true.

I've made no false premise to rationalize, I stand by facts discovered by the scientific process by educated observers, which you think is poppycock.

You are the one who called it a "fable".

Why don't you explain why you describe it as such?

Good. Go read some Biology books. the LAW of Evolution is accepted by science. It is still a work-in-progress, but parts are being filled in yearly.

It's a made up storing conveying a moral. Sounds like a fable to me. What scientific evidence supports the story?

They were from thousands of years ago, that is fact.

They had yet to invent the Jetliner at that time, so their "world" was very limited.

They has yet to invent so much as a microscope, so their knowledge of science was minimal.

I read biology books in both high school and college.

The high school class taught evolution. I was smart enough to realize that it was a faulty theory, but I wasn't mature enough to understand the concept of passive protest, so I answered the questions on the exams "correctly" , and passed the class.

In college, I had more freedom about what I could choose for a science class(though I realized later that I could have taken chemistry or physics in high school - and avoided having to dissect worms and frogs, or learn the false theory of evolution) so I chose a natural history class.

The professor was a typical liberal. He aggressively pushed the idea that global warming is "man-made".

He went so far as to make a "freebie" question on his exam read "Global warming is caused by the action of human beings" - True - (A) - entirely ignoring that this is a controversial topic currently under global debate.

All I had to do to get the point was fill in the only available circle - (A) - the rest of the questions has options of (A), (B), (C), and (D) , with the exception of the essay questions where we had to truly prove that we understood the taught material.

I left that global warming question blank - in protest.

I passed the class - and let the dean know my dissatisfaction when we were asked to rate our professor.

Yes, of course they did.

No one with a rational brain cell active in their cranium believes otherwise.
