    If only God would have dictated the creation account to the author in terms that complied with modern science, we would not be in the fix we are in! Shall we lay the blame with God? He could have brought the author “up to speed” and inspired a creation narrative that would have “stood the test of time”, and yet for whatever reason He chose not to. Instead, He inspired a creation story that fit into the cosmology of the primary audience, shepherds in ancient Palestine.
