I'm a Presbyterian, (And a preacher's kid, to boot) and I've never really taken the first chapter or two of the bible seriously. Actually, there's a lot of it I don't take seriously, because I believe a good part of it was influnced by whoever wrote any given section and their experiences in life, and the views held at that time.
In other words, there are a few recurring themes in the Bible that I take seriously, but the exact words, for the most part, I don't take literally. Does that make sense?
