That's the description of a behavior of body of people. I think some compatibility is required but not in all things. The bible is a book written for a pastoral people to understand. It certainly has a high level of truth in it for being 3500 years old. I find it hard to ignore. It's a true time traveler. Few things have come so far forward in time and remain in our common view. I respect the creationist theory and I add no ridicule to it or to the standard geologic estimates of time.
