A Stretched Mind

When a professor pointed out to me that the story of creation in Genesis is actually two different stories and that their descriptions don't match, I realized I had to change the way I saw the Bible. I realized it wasn't the literal Word of God I'd been raised to believe it was.

Once you learn something, you can't unlearn it.

As Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., says, "Man's mind, stretched by a new idea, never goes back to its original dimensions."
