comment Is abortion okay if it is medically necessary?
I think the relevant question when asking "when does life begin?" is to ask "what changes in the nature of the child from the minute before the child is born to the minute after?" The full answer is too long for a comment, but the nutshell answer is: Age, location, and dependence. But none of those things affect person-hood. A friend of mine (sarcastically) advocates abortion rights up to the age of 4. Because just as much changes between the ages of 3 and 4 as between pre-birth and birth. But by the age of 4, parents will be much more educated as to whether they wish to be parents!

comment Why do OEC discount the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis?
@Jonathan: I see you didn't like my changes... that's okay :) My main reason for the change was a realization that OECs are not the only ones who take Genesis figuratively. My recent reading indicates that through most of church history, prominent theologians took Gen 1 figuratively, but believed that God instantaneously created the universe. So they were clearly not OECs, but they also took a figurative view. If you prefer to keep the question specifically about OECs, though, that's okay with me.

comment Why did God make it a sin to eat an apple?
Proponents of a mythical Adam would say that when Christ is compared with Adam, it is not proof that Adam was literal, but that the concept of Adam is important.
