The bible shows how people fall into religiosity yet people fall into religiosity supposing they are supporting the bible. The text in Genesis does not endorse a literal approach; the first two chapters contravene each other. For a literal approach to be true mankind would have to have broken the earth in and populated it with people within one day- from being made on the sixth day to the arrival of the seventh so that God's work could be finished on the seventh. Until man had established his rule God's work is incomplete, God is still working through man to accomplish this. The rest of the bible shows that a fundamental literal approach of Genesis handicaps true interpretation, the true cripples in the matter are those who cling to such a way. This does not mean that Genesis is wrong or the rest of the bible is these things do not show God or his word to be untrue. These things show that the Bible-bashers are wrong.
