I've got a problem with this- many Christians believe in evolution. It's
usually only the more fundamental types that go for scriptural literalism,
anyway... that "man was created form the dust of the earth" is usually given
about as much credence as "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" or
something like that- this can be explained through the idea of parable, I
think. Of course, not living in Tennessee, I could just be living a
sheltered existence...
