A fairy tale? There is history there too, no?

I believe that the Bible has to be taken in it's entirety; you can't just take one verse as a stand alone. I think that you also have to see the Bible from the historical view too. What was common practice in society at those times? I also believe that the entire Bible is the divinely inspired word of God. What He says He means for then and for today and always.

I also need to add, there is a lot of prophetic scripture that is written in imagery meaning that what the prophets saw was beyond their ability to understand so they had to use what they had to describe future-time events (ie. a giant locust for a helicopter). So, the writing seems "fairy tail-ish" but only because of a lack of understanding how to describe what they were seeing in their visions.
