    discussion relevant to this wiki
     
 * Does Exodus 33:20-23 read as though it is to be taken literally? Is Genesis 9:6 helpful?
 
 * Does Psalm 90:2-3 allude to the concept of "Mother Earth"? (Compare Job 1:21 and other verses linked from there.)
 
 * In defence of a literal interpretation of the days of early Genesis, it is sometimes claimed that Biblical "days" cannot be metaphorical if they have mornings and evenings. Does this rule work in Psalm 90?
 
 * On the basis of 1 Corinthians 3:11 it has been claimed that our faith in Jesus Christ should not be threatened by any proposed or perceived difficulties with the Old Testament. Do you agree?
 
 * Paul's reference to "the wisdom of the world" is sometimes taken as Biblical justification for denigrating the mainstream science of the 19th to 21st centuries. Is that reasonable?
