and how do you define it.

Does that mean God gets exactly what He wants in the book or....
mostly but the writer can mess up a few things.

I must admit I am curious.

If you accept that the new testament is written in parables, not literals, and that Jesus is god talking to us, then why do you insist on thinking that the Torah is any more than metaphor with messages, not historical fact?

Because Jesus spoke of them as if he believed they were literal.
Do you wish references?

Sedimentary rock is dated from when it became a sediment. It would date a world wide flood, if there were one.

It wouldn’t if the trace radioactive elements were not given a chance to escape before being buried. The resulting sedimentary rock would have all the trace elements of the older rocks they were formed from.
False assumptions of slow gradual process give false results.

I do not think it matters to god whether you believe in the literal truth of the bible or not.

So the ten commandments are really the ten suggestions?

If I took hell to be a factious place and it turns out to be real, that would be a nasty surprise.
