Could you do us all a favor and make a list of everything in your bible/holy text that’s supposed to be taken literally, and what’s to be taken as a metaphor?
It would be really useful for two reasons:
1) It would settle once and for all whether YOU should give a crap about it
(e.g. why is original sin still a thing if the story of Adam and Eve is supposed to be taken as a metaphor?)
2) I would really love to see your faces once science disproves yet another thing from that book you claim to have happened, and you won’t be able to say it was a metaphor all along.
So, are you up for the challenge, or you don’t have enough faith?
