One piece of literal readings of the bible that get me is the idea that the earth was created, including man, in just 6 days. The idea that in the year 2008, anyone still believes this to be true shocks me every time I hear it. ABC news is running this great series about the fossil records of man. I would urge you to take a look as just the record shows that this 6 day, 10,000 year old earth story is outlandish.
The story walks you through much of the evidence for the evolution of man. I think one of the reasons that religious folks don’t want to accept this evidence is that it means they need to reject a part of the bible. In their eyes, if one piece of the bible is wrong, it is all wrong.
