    Bible : Not a Modern Science Textbook

    That's the official policy of the General Synod of the Anglican Church.
    Many Christians have been stung by criticisms which attempt to associate them with American fundamentalists who have waged a high-profile campaign in the US in favour of Creationism, or so-called Intelligent Design theory.

    Capon added: "I am not suggesting that we should take the Bible, the inspired word of God, with anything other than the utmost seriousness and reverence. But we make a category mistake if we try to read it as a modern scientific textbook. We should be very wary of staking everything on proving or disproving a particular scientific proof.

    "Rejecting much mainstream science does nothing to support those Christians who are scientists in their vocation or strengthen the Christian voice in the scientific area. Christians have always taken their part in scientific endeavour and in unlocking the mysteries of the whole of God's creation."
    Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. -- Aldous Huxley

    Considering modern science textbooks won't be modern science textbooks in 100 years, the only thing I can think to say is "duh!"
