Re: A Literal Discrepancy

From my perspective, such a proposal indicates that 63% of Americans
don't have much sense about the Bible.
To say the Bible is "literally true" is not particularly meaningful
unless you want to find out that someone doesn't really know much
about the Bible.
Maybe they were just proposing that the Bible is true, literally
(perhaps a redundancy thing); not that all its claims are literally
true (i.e., Herod wasn't really a furry forest creature with a bushy
tail, but he was still a "fox").
So much for polls!
