  You raise a good point. My main line of reasoning is if someone says "Well, 
that's just a myth" or "That's outdated, science has disproved Genesis," not 
someone who misinterperates the fact that Genesis creation is literal rather 
than a metaphore. Then again taking too much of the Bible as a metaphore 
could also cause major problems, but that's a whole different can of worms.
