When confronted with the reality that the earth is not just 11000 years old one must realize that the whole idea of Adam and Eve es just ridiculous, again even the most fervent believer has to stop arguing at that point... so he, as to defend himself without any explanation what so ever (like is the MO for believers) he just blurted out the word "Allegory"
dictionary.com's definition of Allegory is:
–noun, plural -ries.
a symbolical narrative: the allegory of Piers Plowman.
emblem ( def. 3 ) .
Well I guess I am ignorant, could some please tell me which parts of the bible are just "Allegory" and which are "The true word of the one true GOD which must be obeyed letter by letter or we shall perish forever in the fiery pits of hell"?
