    Hmm. I guess they all had the same word, rather than each having separate "words."
    Actually, the words 'their own' suggests an individual thought/separate 'word' by each author. The difference between pluralization of the word, 'word' vs 'word(s)', would be more indicative of one collective idea/word, versus, many different p.o.v....still all within one individual author. /anal

    But, to elaborate on Babylon Candle's thought, I guess it comes the question of how to study theology? If there can be both a literal and a liberal interpretation...moving beyond the philosophical...to applicability (which is the case for a lot of theists - i.e., amounts to a certain adherence/practice in their every day lives).....how does one reconcile that whatever interpretation they are believing is fitting? Is it about experts? Is it about different thoughts and picking and choosing what fits best with one's own inherent ideology (is there even an inherent ideology?)? Or, is it following the masses? Or, default, picking one at a time, and finally settling on the one that works 'best'?

    Exactly!!! Hence the reason why it is ridiculous to bring Intelligent Design into the realm of science.

    Science makes NO comment, either way, on the supernatural. Existence or non-existence.

    It would benefit all sides and everyone in between to realize that we all don't have to agree.
    Beyond that, I think there is science (defined by one thing and that is when testing an idea it follows the scientific method, that's it) If it does not follow the scientific method, then it is another way of figuring something out.

    It is of course good for a society to be able to think about things in different ways. But if it does not follow the scientific method it is not science, it's something else.

    So to creationist, I say, why do you need to call yourself scientific? Youre religion, it's ok, just be in the category of religion. It is silly when people cant just disagree and let it be!
    Out beyond idea's of rightdoing and wrongdoing, there is a field, I'll meet you there. ~Rumi
