Bible lost the reason part due to the doing of the narrators and the scribes

On second thought, religious fundamentalists will try to argue that these sacred texts relate to creation, but the arguments be weak, at best.

2. Btw, it is more than naive for fundys to say the age of the universe is 6,000 years old when we know it is nearly 14 billion. It is more like stubborn intransigence. Also, if the fundys are so far off on this simple logic, how can we trust their logic on more complex issues, such as “how was the universe created”?” Unquote

Your first issue

Word of Revelation is not primarily intended for scientific development; it is for ethical, moral and spiritual progress of the human beings. Only issues aligned with the prime teachings of Moses (or Religion) are supposed to be addressed by Torah etc.

Your second issue

Fundys try wrongly to infer age of Universe from Genesis. I agree it is nearly 14 billion years old.

Religion is concerned with the stage man got prepared or was able (in man’s evolution) to receive G-d’s Converse for guidance.

Bible cannot answer these questions; as Bible has lost the reason part due to the doing of the narrators and the scribes.

Men have to spoon feed Bible the missing reason part.
