Yep. It's poetry and mythology. It has no fixed or definite meaning. There is is no right or wrong interpretation any more than there is to a song like Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds..Oh. So anybody that can read, can read the Bible and interpret it perfectly.
Could you?But anybody that could read, cannot read a medical journal and interpret it properly..
Here's one difference: one is written in technical jargon having precise meanings, the other is vague and often contradictory imagery that the reader interprets according to personal history and psychology..
Here's another difference: if you "misunderstand" the bible, it doesn't matter. Go ahead and "misunderstand" to creation myth or the flood myth.Nobody gets hurt. In fact, nothing changes at all. That's because it's about nothing, like the poem Jabberwocky.
This could be why no scientific knowledge has come from Christianity or its bible - just reason and observation.
It's also why no medical knowledge used in those hospitals you give Christianity credit for, and no useful knowledge taught in those universities you credit Christianity for, came from your bible or religion. Those things were gifts of rational skepticism, which begins with ignoring folklore - things like your bible. legends, and old wives tales.
