‘But Genesis is not a science textbook’

    Of course isn't. Unrepeatable events are as much away from science than any other unrepeating event. But if it has a tendency to repeat sooner, than scientists can understand it (F=ma, gravity, bending of light, etc.). Historians will have a ball with events that cannot possibly be repeated (ex. JFK assassination, 6BC, etc).

    There's no scientific OR historical evidence that anything remakable happened in 6BC (at least not in Gallili). There's a storybook about it, two in fact, and a whole lot of speculation by interested parties, but that doesn't amount to history, it's more like a conspiracy theory!

    I'm as lost as you are.

    And when has non-repeatable events become unscientific? Last I heard, people are still studying the big bang.

    Sorry dude, can't tell what you're trying to say here. Gotta try again.
