comment Why do Biblical examples of polygamy include polygyny and not polyandry?
Historically, polygyny has been more commonly practiced, although polyandry and group marriage have also occurred to lesser degrees (and sometimes still do). I think the most common and likely explanations are that a) in polygamous cultures, there are often a shortage of men, due to wars and inter-tribal conflicts, and b) men are the "bread winners" and expected to care for their spouse(s), and not the other way around.

comment Why are Protestants from the Church of England allowed to divorce?
@PaulA.Clayton: Perhaps. It's all subject to interpretation. But that's really beside the point--some churches have such rules (including Catholic churches--which doesn't really relate to the question).

comment What is the case for interpreting the Genesis creation account literally?
@Jas3.1: You are saying that anyone who disagrees with you today is ignorant. And I don't buy it.

comment Christian view of why there are so many similarities between Quran and Bible?
Many Christians don't believe in a global flood either, for whatever that's worth. There are also even minority Christian groups that don't believe in a literal crucifixion of Christ.

comment What is the case for interpreting the Genesis creation account literally?
@Jas3.1: That's not an argument in your favor. That's simply a restatement of the debate; indeed, of every side of every debate, ever. "I believe X, and those who disagree are ignorant."

comment What is the case for interpreting the Genesis creation account literally?
I disagree with the very first premise. Whenever reading any work, the appropriate question to ask is not "Should I interpret this literally?" which poses a false, binary answer, but "How should I interpret this?" which allows one to truly appreciate the work as it was intended to be written.

comment What is the case for interpreting the Genesis creation account literally?
@Jas3.1: That's clearly a false explanation, as for centuries the church has read it as a non-literal account. The concept of a literal 7-creation days has only existed for about 150 years.
