User:Rursus is a Protestant Lutheran Christian, observing with horror the dishonesty and trickery of fringe "Christians" labeling themselves Creationists, Intelligent Design adherents and other intellectual atrocities.

Yes, God created the Universe, but the Bible doesn't describe this! Genesis describes a mythology counterparting some cultural evolution, and gives some mythical setting for the emergence of mind, consciousness, consciousness of good and evil and the cognitive dissonance called "sin". Only idiots that can't handle symbols treat Genesis as a literal description of how Universe was created. The original Christian culture was always to interpret the Old Testament (Torah) mythically and mystically. Literalism and fundamentalism are both unfounded in the history of Christianity, and a real deviation from the common Christian treatment of the Scripture.
